It’s the farthest distance tested so far in teleportation experiments, the researchers said. Their work was published online on the open access site arXiv. Continue reading

Based in Portland, Ore., Elemental made software for compressing massive video files and formatting them for different devices. Its technology had helped stream the Olympic Games online, communicate with the International Space Station, and funnel drone footage to the Central Intelligence Agency.
