Scientists are Conducting Teleportation Experiments In The Lab

From “Star Trek” to the new sci-fi film “Jumper,” we’re all familiar with the idea of teleportation. Scientists are actually doing real teleportation experiments in the lab.

The research used in the video to the right was presented at the American Physical Society (March 8, 2007), and published in Physical Review Letters (June 30, 2006) and Nature (June 17, 2004). Wineland’s research is funded by NIST and the NSA.
