Lame, ....... like i told At1 ..... get an idea as to what the Scientists are trying to do ....
Quoting & relying on a team that 10 years behind from the get go .... is not the best place to get your information.
Do a bit of reading ..... read the work of teams who are way beyond the distance factor an who are working on the more important issues like, the speed of the information, the storage of the information, Quantum computers,
qubits .... ect ect.

Agreed .... and iv never said otherwise. Im just putting into perspective how unimportant this teams contribution to a field that has already moved well beyond them.
hell .... they are sending beams of light still where as the Australian team move on from that 10 years ago & are now working on sending qubit's.
[quote=rath]the distance traveled is defined by the technology .......... & the technology has not changed since the Australian researches first achieved this over ten years ago.
En-Lugal wrote:Care to backup that statement with verifiable proof? I doubt you can considering that technology has seen considerable improvements in this field. Are they not predicting quantum computers in the near future thanks to advances in the technology?
Already did.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-04-15/t ... ty/2614784australian-breakthrough-brings-quantum-computing-closer-t7946.html
The quantum computer is both faster, & smaller ...... ergo more likely to fit inside said satellites.

En-Lugal wrote:You keep saying that but it doesn't make it true. After all, the information getting from point A to point B is relevant as it is the whole point, to communicate over distances.
Then don't take my word for it .... go an read ... learn .... get an idea.
teleportation is the ability to essentially move one object from one place to another without traversing the space in between. But as Forbes explains, the actual object is not moving from point A to point B. Rather, the distant photon mirrors the information contained by the original photon, essentially becoming an identical twin.

A. catch up
B. put the comment in perspective
c. your lack of involvement from the start, is why you don't understand what iv been saying all along.
(( way to join in half way through the topic ))
Im not saying distance isn't an important factor in the overall subject.
Im saying ...... in this case & most the recent examples .... it does not mean jack.
1. just because they sent outdated information, ( a photon ) using outdated technology, 40km or 20 miles further than the Chinese team did. http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/05/15/bea ... on-record/
(( is irrelevant to what is being done in the filed today. ))
Current technology & science is using different technology & sending different information .... & that is what will eventually take distance out of the equation.
(( Quantum computer ..... Qubits )) .... ect ect
