What they didn't say is that the cloned beam is turned out to be evil and
now lives in the attic eating fish heads.

This has got to be the Bizarre Story of the Day...

Via PhysOrg.com.


Imagine Captain Kirk being beamed back to the Starship Enterprise and two
versions of the Star Trek hero arriving in the spacecraft's transporter
room. It happened 40 years ago in an episode of the TV science fiction
classic, and now scientists at the University of York and colleagues in
Japan have managed something strikingly similar in the laboratory - though
no starship commander was involved.

The scientists have succeeded in making the first remote copies of beams of
laser light, by combining quantum cloning with quantum teleportation into a
single experimental step. Telecloning is more efficient than any combination
of teleportation and local cloning because it relies on a new form of
quantum entanglement - multipartite entanglement.



Cool. :-)
