For the first time ever, scientists have teleported something into space.
Chinese scientists from the University of Science and Technology of China sent a photon up away from earth.
It's further than something like that has been sent before.

According to the scientists' published paper, it happens through teleportation using quantum entanglement.
That means it transfers the information about a photon to another point in space.
Meaning, it replicates it without actually transporting it.
This isn't just exciting because it's a breakthrough, but because it could mean big things for future technological developments.
Such as a quantum internet that connects different parts of the world at seemingly impossible speeds.
