Thanks to lab experiments, there is growth in the number of “beam me up” believers, but there is an equal amount of disbelief, too.
Over the last few years, however, researchers have successfully teleported beams of light across a laboratory bench. Also, the quantum state of a trapped calcium ion to another calcium ion has been teleported in a controlled way.
