    Thanks to Fergal1982 for this article

    Scientists have performed successful teleportation on atoms for the first time, the journal Nature reports.
    The feat was achieved by two teams of researchers working independently on the problem in the US and Austria.

    The ability to transfer key properties of one particle to another without using any physical link has until now only been achieved with laser light.

    Experts say being able to do the same with massive particles like atoms could lead to new superfast computers.

    This development is a long way from the transporters used by Jean-Luc Picard and Captain Kirk in the famous Star Trek TV series.

      I don't understand why they can't do this with humans.

      I mean if the fidelity is 0.75, then you could just say to the budding Mr Scott "just take off the beer belly fella, and send the rest on"


      Interesting article :thumbleft
