Teleportation is not just science fiction, it’s been a scientific reality for well over a decade now. Universities across the globe have taken the first tentative steps by teleporting particles of ever greater size and complexity across ever greater distances.
As of 2015, the longest distance that particles have been teleported stands at 143 kilometres (about 89 miles). Physicists from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences beamed particles between two locations on the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife.
Somehow, I didn’t achieve quite so much when I was on Tenerife.
