Scientists are taking gradual steps towards the concept of teleportation via quantum entanglement.
For years science fiction has put forward the concept of teleporters capable of instantly transporting objects and people from one place to another, but how plausible is such a technology in real life ? Could we one day have Star Trek style teleporters ?
""Quantum entanglement" may sound like an awful sci-fi romance flick, but it's actually a phenomenon that physicists say may someday lead to the ability to teleport an object all the way across the galaxy instantly."
