Report from the 3rd Level: "Long Distance Teleportation Between Two Atoms"

Another rudimentary achievement by Random-Earth 2012. Nevertheless, an important one. "Teleportation works because of a remarkable quantum phenomenon called entanglement which only occurs on the atomic and subatomic scale. Once two objects are put in an entangled state, their properties are inextricably entwined. Although those properties are inherently unknowable until a measurement is made, measuring either one of the objects instantly determines the characteristics of the other, no matter how far apart they are."

-Professor Christopher Monroe, University of Maryland
