Chinese scientists break teleportation record by nearly 100km [pic]
Posted by on May 16th, 2012

You know how in Star Trek they touch the badge on their suits and say ‘Beam me up Scotty’ before being teleported back to the safety of the Starship Enterprise…well this is nothing like that.

But it will still give geeks around the world boners because Chinese physicists have smashed the teleportation record by sending a particle 97 km, essentially ‘moving it from one place to another without traversing the space in between’. The old record stood at 16km.

Here is a brief layman’s explanation of what happened. Hey check…it looks like a bikini.

And here’s is the uncensored geek porn version.

To you and i that makes f**k all sense, but there are nerds out there who just wet themselves. Their calculator screens are now covered in quantum juice.

“Using powerful lasers and optics to manipulate photons, or units of light, researchers in China set a record for teleporting a photon more than 10 miles (16 km), TIME reported in 2010. Now a different team of physicists at the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai says it has shattered that record, claiming to have sent a photon more than 60 miles (97 km). Quantum teleportation, which has been around since 1997, is a little different than what you see in sci-fi movies. Considered “one of the holy grails of practical quantum communication,” as the scientists write in their abstract, teleportation is the ability to essentially move one object from one place to another without traversing the space in between. [TIME] me when they make a real teleportion device so i can fulfill one of my childhood dreams and say ‘Beat me up Scotty’.

‘beam me up Scotty” has actually never been used in any star trek tv episode or film…
