'Scientists in China have broken the record for quantum teleportation, achieving a distance of about 10 miles, according to a new study in Nature Photonics. That's a giant leap from previous achievements.

The feat brings us closer to communicating information without needing a traditional signal transmission, the researchers note. Although it's called teleportation, no matter is really moved. Rather, the quantum state of one object is transferred to another object.'
