But science fiction fans will be disappointed to learn that no one expects to be able to teleport people or other macrosopic objects in the foreseeable future, for a variety of engineering reasons, even though it would not violate any fundamental law to do so.")

Long distance teleportation is crucial if dreams of superfast quantum computing are to be realised. When physicists say 'teleportation', they are describing the transfer of key properies from one particle to another without a physical link. The team has published its findings in the academic journal Nature ... Quantum teleportation relies on an aspect of physics known as 'entanglement', whereby the properties of two particles can be tied together even when they are far apart. Einstein called it 'spooky action at a distance.'")
