“This is the most sophisticated teleportation experiment ever conducted,” writes Microsoft researcher Kevin Kelly, who described the experiment in a blog post. “The teleportation was successful, the data were downloaded successfully and the experiment was able to continue with no significant interference, for the entire duration of the experiment.”
The scientists are experimenting with quantum teleportation, which involves sending a quantum state of information — in this case, an apple — and receiving the result, or “state,” back from the distant location.
This is an image of a quantum teleportation experiment in New York.
“The experiment took place in the quantum teleportation facility located at Microsoft’s Redmond Research Center, and was headed up by Dr. Subir Sachdeva,” Kelly writes. “The experiment involved using pairs of photons. Each pair was sent from a fixed location in New York City to the teleportation site in Redmond, Washington, which was located on the roof of Microsoft’s headquarters. The photon pairs were separated and sent in opposite directions along the respective paths.”
It was a bit of a trial and error process, as the first attempt resulted in the apple getting lost. But it eventually worked.
A video that shows the experiment is embedded above.
The experiment highlights the amazing nature of quantum mechanics, which can apparently explain why the universe is so weird. For instance, it allows for the teleportation of an object, but not the object itself. That means the apple is being teleported, but its location is still in Redmond, Washington.

“Teleportation is in some sense similar to the way light travels,” Kelly writes. “Light travels as a wave. The wave travels as a series of particles. So, in the same way, the particle that travels from New York to Redmond is a photon. It can be thought of as a particle that goes out in one direction, but arrives at the destination in a different direction.”
The experiment also points to the need to develop quantum computers, which could be used to create encryption keys and protect sensitive information.
“Quantum teleportation is a simple demonstration of quantum mechanics,” Kelly writes. “In some sense, quantum mechanics has this amazing ability to describe very complex systems, like atoms and electrons, and their interactions with other particles. And it can be used to explain how a system behaves. It’s very useful for understanding the way the universe works.”
Meanwhile, here’s the video showing the apple teleported:

This Husband-and-Wife Science Proposal Was Genius
After the apple disappears, they hit it with a javelin, after which it reappears. The first time it takes a bite out of the apple, but then after it reappears, it has no bite marks. The scientists have tried the same experiment with 10 apples.
The scientists used two powerful lasers in the experiment. One laser aimed at the apple while the other one hit the apple with a javelin, and when the laser was turned off, the apple vanished.
This experiment, described in the journal Physical Review Letters, could be a new form of teleportation. The scientists said that this experiment is the first time that teleportation of an object has been carried out by using only lasers and not by making use of any electromagnetic fields.
The scientists said that this experiment may pave way for the development of an ultra-secure quantum communication network.
This is not the first time that scientists have tried to teleport objects using lasers. In 2016, scientists from the University of Central Florida in Orlando had successfully teleported a photon from one point to another with the help of a teleportation-generating machine.
The scientists created the machine, which they called a ‘quantum teleportation generator’. This machine was created to enable them to teleport individual particles without the use of electromagnetic fields.
