Dutch scientists teleport data

Scientists in the Netherlands (TU Delft) have moved a step closer to overriding one of Albert Einstein’s most famous objections to the implications of quantum mechanics, which he described as ‘spooky action at a distance.’

In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to reliably teleport information between two quantum bits separated by three meters, or about 10 feet.

Quantum teleportation is not the ‘movie’-style movement of people or things; rather, it involves transferring so-called quantum information — in this case what is known as the spin state of an electron — from one place to another without moving the physical matter to which the information is attached.
