Star Trek nerds rejoice! Teleportation is getting closer to being a reality, with a couple of scientists in Denmark successfully transporting an object about a foot and a half. Don't squeeze into that monochromatic jumper just yet, Scotty — they're talking pretty tiny pieces of matter here. There isn't going to be any teleportation of sweaty convention attendees anytime soon. The process, known as quantum entanglement, is seriously complicated, as one would expect, but involves transporting both light and matter. It could have practical applications in data transfer in the future, but as for now it's just a cool party trick the boys from Copenhagen can use at the bars after work."
