Scientists achieve reliable quantum teleportation for the first time with tiny bits of data.
The advancement in technology in today’s world is surely quite overwhelming and with every new step towards more advancement we get a little surprised each time. Did you ever think that a seemingly ‘magical’ phenomenon from Star Wars would ever become possible in our real world? We certainly did not. But the physicists at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands led by Ronald Hanson have claimed that they were able to send quantum data from one electron to another, seemingly unconnected electron 10 feet away. And this process was repeated again and again to be sure of what they had achieved.
When this procedure was carried out, the researchers were able to achieve this quantum teleportation over and over with a 100 percent success rate. This phenomenon from Star Wars called the quantum teleportation, if done in a reliable way, can have huge implications for the world of physics. The possibility of this happening will also disapprove Albert Einstein's doubts about the validity of quantum mechanics.
If we think in terms of operating on a larger level as compared to the quantum level, then it could possibly mean that our descendants could one day actually be beamed up in a way similar to what the late Gene Roddenberry envisioned.
''If you believe we are nothing more than a collection of atoms strung together in a particular way, then in principle it should be possible to teleport ourselves from one place to another," Hanson told the Telegraph. ''In practice it's extremely unlikely, but to say it can never work is very dangerous...I would not rule it out, because there's no fundamental law of physics preventing it."
