Quantum Teleportation possible, 100+ meters now but space-based transmission sure in future

With eights days difference, two research groups, one in China and the other in Canary islands proved that the long-cherished quantum teleportation is possible. The Chinese group did the experiemnt on May 17 and achieved quantum teleportation across Qinghai Lake in China, a distance of 97 km, which is 16 km more than the previous record. Within eight days, a ...
