I'm surprised this hasn't got more attention.



It is a long way from Star Trek, but teleportation - the disembodiment of
an object in one location and its reconstruction in another - has been
successfully carried out in a physics lab in Australia.
Scientists at the Australian National University (ANU) made a beam of light
disappear in one place and reappear in another a short distance away.

The achievement confirms that in theory teleportation is possible, at least
for sub-atomic particles; whether it can be done for larger systems, such
as atoms, remains to be seen.
