Quantum teleportation achieved! (for information)

Quantum teleportation of information - taking advantage of the "entanglement" phenomenon to destroy information in one place while simultaneously creating it in a location that could be across town or across the galaxy - has been pursued for years. Now a "complex set" of information has been transferred by Japanese and Australian researchers. The setup required for such teleportation now is an impossibly complex-looking device, but so were the first computers, This is a big step toward quantum computers and communications devices - still years off, but definitely possible.
