"Beam me up Scotty". Any fan of Star Trek would recognize this line. In a past posting an article described some of the fanciful Star Trek technologies that have come to pass. Now we might be a witness to the possibility of teleportation. The phenomena of quantum entanglements has been known for some time and has been used on earth. This has now been used to transmit from earth to a satellite 300 miles in orbit. It's not an easy concept to grasp, but it's worth a basic understanding as it could shape future technological breakthroughs. -ed
