NFT: Scientists teleport photons 300 miles into space

Because....Science!

Quote:
Chinese scientists have teleported an object from Earth to a satellite orbiting 300 miles away in space, in a demonstration that has echoes of science fiction.

The feat sets a new record for quantum teleportation, an eerie phenomenon in which the complete properties of one particle are instantaneously transferred to another in effect teleporting it to a distant location.

Scientists have hailed the advance as a significant step towards the goal of creating an unhackable quantum internet.

The research hinged on a bizarre effect known as quantum entanglement, in which pairs of particles are generated simultaneously meaning they inhabit a single, shared quantum state. Counter-intuitively, this twinned existence continues, even when the particles are separated by vast distances: any change in one will still affect the other.

Scientists can exploit this effect to transfer information between the two entangled particles. In quantum teleportation, a third particle is introduced and entangled with one of the original pair, in such a way that its distant partner assumes the exact state of the third particle.

one photon responded "I'm travelling light"

Working out the bugs could lead to some problematic situations

I will say I find it interesting that the biggest aspect they see

this benefiting is the Internet. I would of thought using it for stuff like travel and delivery of goods would be the objective. Of course the Internet part might just be the first aspect and the other uses come later

They are only teleporting information not matter. Hence the reason why its internet and not actual goods or objects..

Quantum PornTube and Quantum Cat Videos are worth the effort.
