back to article Japanese quantum boffins 'may have the key to TELEPORTATION'

Don't get too excited, the world's not about to get Star Trek-style transporters. However, if a quantum communications theory formulated by three Tohoku University boffins can stand the test of experiment, they could break the distance limitations that currently constrain quantum communications. At this point, the exercise …

    The quantum world is indescribable but real

    When I did a physics degree one of the most significant parts of it was second year quantum mechanics. A large part of that was trying to get over the habits of trying to visualise what is going on and just do the maths. Quantum mechanics has been tested to the breaking point in many ways for almost 100 years and has been proved right in every case but intuitively it just cant be visualized. Anyone trying to describe something that is intrinsically quantum mechanical without using differential equations is doomed to failure. This feels so wrong but basically in extreme conditions the universe does not behave in the way that we experience in day to day life.

      It is just differently describable.

    We still don't understand it either.
