Teleporting is amazing, but it's only possible in science fiction, right?
Disappearing in one place and reappearing in another, seemingly without travelling, seems like it can only happen in cartoons and films and Star Trek
Well, China have just announced that they've managed it!
They only teleported one photon (an impossibly tiny particle)They did it like using a photocopier rather than what we properly think of as teleportation, but it's still a huge leap forward in the journey to reach super cool spacey magic sci-fi stuff
It feels like teleporting people huge distances through space can't be far off!
And who needs a spaceship when you can just be transported?
Think of the teleportation pranks!
