Some 40 labs around the world are currently trying to teleport a laser beam after pioneering work in 1998 at the California Institute of Technology showed it should be possible.

Your telling me that over ten years has past and they are still doing the same experiment.
no wonder mankind is doomed.

Andrea Morello, program manager at the Centre for Quantum Computing and Communication Technology at the University of New South Wales, said just three hundred quantum bits, or "qubits" were capable of storing a number greater than the number of particles in the universe.
In a landmark paper published today in the journal Nature, the research team describes how it was able to both read and write information using the spin, or magnetic orientation, of an electron bound to a single phosphorus atom which was implanted next to a specially-designed silicon transistor.

En-Lugal wrote:The important fact in that experiment was that that particular team replicated the information that made up the beam of light a short distance away, demonstrating it could be done. This was a test of a prototype for the technology.
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?

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.

The automobile isn't "reinvented" every year, it's the same basic principle as the original design. What changes is how efficiently it continues to serve it's purpose, mileage and safety for example.

Like upgrading from 3G to 4G, etc. You don't always have to invent a new delivery system or network, often a few lines of code or software will improve existing technology. Meaning they don't have to take down and install new towers when a breakthrough in technology is discovered.

Well, according to Rath, every car manufacturer is plagiarizing the use of 4 wheels.

It only took them 1 year to invent it, but another 20 years to figure out 2 go on the front and 2 go on the back. Did you hear Austrailia won a gold medal in the Olympics, along with Silver and Bronze in the same event. A little known sport called "Whinning". This year they lost however becasue the Coach is a fugitive, now hiding in a Embassy, never herd of the guy.

From the 2002 article. Going by rath's reasoning, the 2002 team stole the credit for an earlier teams work to get grants and are fat, rich Australians. You and I know better than to say that. We see that the 2002 team merely demonstrated that the 1998 teams proposal was correct and that it was indeed possible. That they were the first to prove it and thus received the credit.
