China Just Became the First Country to Teleport Something into Space

Chinese scientists have successfully teleported a photon from our planet into space, achieving quantum teleportation at a great distance for the first time in history. 

Researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai launched the photon from Ngari in Tibet, some 870 miles into a Chinese research satellite, reports Inverse, Launched just last year into a sun-synchronous orbit, the Micius satellite is a highly sensitive photon receiver that is developed to identify quantum states of single photons fired from the ground.
