A team of scientist from Japan and Australia found a way to successfully teleport light particles from one place to another

Researchers teleported the wave packet of lights by using the famed Schrodinger’s cat” theory

The team of scientist from university of Tokyo led by Professor Akira Furusawa
have recently reported a successful attempt at quantum teleportation of a complex quantum system from a certain point A to another point B without losing information

Scientist were able to quickly transfer a complex set of quantum information while preserving its integrity.
The information, in the form of light, was manipulated in such a way that it existed in two states at the same time, and it was destroyed in one spot and recreated in another.

The team, led by researchers at the University of Tokyo, say this is the first-ever teleportation, or transfer, of a particular complex set of quantum information from one point to another.

They say it will make possible high-speed, high-fidelity transmission of large volumes of information, such as quantum encryption keys, via communications networks.

Professor Huntington said that the idea of quantum teleportation has been around for about 10 years, but has been difficult to put into practice.

Instead of using ones and zeroes, quantum computers store data as qubits, which can represent one and zero simultaneously.
This superposition enables the computers to solve multiple problems at once.
The new, faster teleportation process means scientists can move blocks of this quantum information around within a computer or across a network, Huntington said.

Scientist managed to teleport wave packets of light speedily without losing data in a Schrodinger’s cat state.

To understand this one has to first understand the Schrodinger and his Cat, a famous experiment.
In 1934 by Erwin Schrodinger suggested The Schrodinger Cat paradox.

So what is The Schrodinger Cat paradox?
In Schrodinger’s famous thought experiment a cat would be placed in a sealed box with a device containing atomic material.

A Geiger counter was included to measure radiation if at some point an atom decayed. Should that happen, the Geiger counter would trigger the release of cyanide gas, which would kill the cat.

The idea was that it was impossible to know whether or not the cat was alive or dead without opening the box and observing it, and that until that happened, both realities existed.
This became known as superposition.

The concept of superposition is employed in quantum computers.

Superposition is exactly what underlies the power of things like quantum computers.
You enable parallel processing because at the same time it’s a one and a zero.
The point is we’ve managed to teleport it from A to B without the one and the zero getting confused.

The research appears in the journal Science.

Today data is successfully transported
Then tomorrow Beam Transportation of Cars, Animals and finally we Humans
will be reality as Shown in the Television Serial Star Trek.

NASA astrobionics team has already developed a wearable medical monitoring system that could beam the life signs of astronauts -- heart rate, temperature, respiration, oxygen saturation -- to satellites in space and from there to Earth locations.

What was the Star Trek Transporter?
The transporter, which dismantles people and then reconstructs their molecular structure somewhere else
