SCMP says in its report “Chinese, Canadian scientists achieve ‘breakthrough’ in teleportation technology”:

Researchers teleport tiny photon particles across cities in breakthrough that could help future development of a faster, more secure ‘quantum internet’

Chinese and Canadian scientists say they have successfully carried out a form of teleportation across an entire city.

The two teams working independently have teleported near-identical versions of tiny particles called photons through cables across Calgary in Canada and Hefei in Anhui province.

The forms of teleported photons were destroyed in one laboratory and recreated in another more than 8km apart in the two cities through optical fibre.

    This is indeed a new threat for the American. With teleportation, the Chinese could teleport a nuclear device into oval office. Or worse, the Chinese could teleport paparazzi into a room where Obama usually met up with Beyonce.
