Scientist "teleport" information one meter

the4thdimension writes "While we may not be beaming up to the Enterprise anytime soon, a team of scientists from the University of Maryland and the University of Michigan have managed to teleport information between two atoms up to a meter apart. Until this point, only very tiny distances were able to be traveled. However, using a complicated system of photons, ions, lasers, and electromagnetics, scientists have managed to "teleport" information contained on one atom to another atom that is in a separate sealed container. This can lead to a wide range of developments in computing and communications."
