Chinese scientists have conducted quantum teleportation
The first ever successful transfer of photons to Earth orbit has been conducted by scientists from China.
The data destination was the Micius Earth Terrestrial Satellite, equipped with a hypersensitive photodetector. The satellite is more than 500 kilometers distant from Earth, so 911 sent photons traveled more than 1400 kilometers, which became a new record, the previous result of the distance was recorded by Austrian scientists (143 kilometers).
This teleportation experiment was one of the first experiments in a series of quantum tests to launch a satellite.
