First object to Earth’s orbit teleported by China


Scientists were not sure in the beginning of 1990s that teleportation could be possible using quantum physics. But now the Chinese researchers have teleported a photon to a satellite orbiting 500 km above the earth from Gobi desert.

The satellite, Micius, is a highly sensitive photo receiver that can detect the quantum states of single photons when sent from ground. The purpose of the launch of Micius was to test several technological aspects of quantum theory like teleportation, entanglement and cryptography.
