** Warning science** please help me understand this: Did China just "transport" something?

I'm lost, as usual, but this reads as the early stages of "Beam me up Scotty". is that right?

China transports something from earth to orbit. WTF? Called Quantum entanglement

Too early to tell. They didn't physically transport anything, and who knows if this protocol can be extended to physical teleportation.

No, it's not really like Beam me up Scotty, unless Captain Kirk, Spock, etc., had a physical clone on each planet. It's not physically moving an object from one place to another, but instead there are two objects, one in space and one on earth, and this transfers the information/characteristics from one to another (in this case, it's just a proton, so there's very little in the way of information/characteristics at this point, but obviously the capabilities would be likely to expand over time).

It sounds like it may have more applications in communication, but that might just be based on what we can comprehend now. Who knows what, if any, new discovery/invention in the future could use this in other ways.

Still pretty cool but not all that much different than a television yet.

Since photons move at the speed of light time does not exist for them. So a single photon can be everywhere at the same time.
