The Quantum Teleportation Breakthrough

While Star Trek-style teleportation is still a long way off, researchers have revealed a major breakthrough in the field of quantum travel.


Two separate teams have transferred quantum information over several miles of fibre optic networks in an urban network.


The results could lead to more secure bank accounts, a faster internet and possibly even open the door to the controversial idea of human teleportation.


Quantum teleportation depends on a phenomenon called quantum entanglement, which allows connections to be made between atoms, with their information being sent to others far away.


The entangled particles are connected in such a way that the action of one directly affects the others, even if they are separated over large distances.
