Well, teleportation has been achieved. This opens many new doors for science (pun intended). I can’t wait to walk through the transporter in my house and instantly be at work, or in Scotland, or Japan,or wherever you want to be.

Of course, this first step is nothing like what we all imagine, but it is a very important first step. Congratulations U of Maryland!
