Is the concept of "teleportation" possible?
Until now, teleportation has been limited to "transporting" single atoms over very short distances -- fractions of a millimeter. However the
National Research Foundation Center for Quantum Optics, a research lab under the aegis of the Niels Bohr Institute and the University of Copenhagen
has reported a breakthrough.
The National Research Foundation Center for Quantum Optics has reported that a breakthrough in their teleportation research. Using light as a
"carrier", Using a process called "quantum entanglement", For the first time, researchers have transported information and matter.
Though this is a far cry from the familiar teleportation process that we are familiar with from the television show "Star Trek" and other science
fiction scenarios, this is one step towards acheiving the transferrence of energy and matter from one location to another almost instantaneously.
