Distance record set for quantum teleportation

Physicists say they have "teleported" quantum information farther than ever before.

This kind of teleportation isn't quite what Scotty was "beaming up" on television's Star Trek, but it does represent a kind of magic of its own. While Star Trek's teleporters transport people from place to place instantaneously, quantum teleportation sends information.
