Intro to Quantum Concepts

Quantum teleportation.  The movement of information without the movement of particles.

In classical bits, you have a zero or one, on or off.


In Quantum world, there is Quantum Bits or Qubits, which encode information, called Quantum Information.


Here's a link with better description: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_teleportation


I believe the movie Stargate as well as Contact has a similar concept, of charging up a teleport and connecting to a similar one on the other side, and sending things through, teleporting.

 Stargate:
Contact:


How about Quantum Cryptography.  A very useful tool for disguising your information for secure communication: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_cryptography


And of course, there's Quantum Computing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_computing


As well as Quantum Entanglement, the joining of two seperate particles such that they are indistinguishable as separate units: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement
allowing the transfer of information without movement.


The Quantum world is perhaps a difficult concept to fathom.  Yet the potential for advancement is tremendous.  Might be beneficial to read a bit about the new phenomenon.  

Or have a beer.  Whichever you prefer.
