Teleportation Accomplished by Netherlands Physicists

Teleportation Accomplished by Netherlands Physicists | e.cloud | Scoop.it
Physicists at Delft University, Netherlands have teleported information. The teleportation took place over a distance of three meters (10 feet), and used a procedure called entanglement. The team achieved this teleportation with 100 percent reliability and without altering the pieces of matter. Teleportation of this nature has never been accomplished before outside of fiction.
