Submission + - Warm up the Nobel Prize: Data Teleportation (phys.org)

selectspec writes: Researches in the Netherlands are claiming to have achieved quantum teleportation of data over a distance of 3 meters without any data loss. They plan on upgrading the experiment to distance of a kilometer. This would prove the famous "spooky action at a distance" theory of quantum mechanics. In laymen terms, this is moving information over distances faster than the speed of light, or rather instantly. Practical applications include phone calls across the global without delays, the end of bandwidth-delay-product issues in networking, and controlling rovers on Mars in real time, not to mention that Mr. Snowden and his former friends can't snoop in on this conversation.
