When Someone Tells You Something Is Impossible

Just remind them that physicists have achieved quantum teleport over a distance of 88 miles

Last May, European researchers reported successfully teleporting photons over a distance of 143 km – a little over 88 miles- between two Canary Islands. When I discussed this finding at the time, one of the caveats I had mentioned about this experiment is that it hadn’t yet been peer-reviewed. Well, now it has. The researchers’ findings have been reviewed and published in Nature. The previous record of 97 kilometers by a team of researchers in China was published in Nature earlier this month.

And then you have discussions with people where they tell you you simply “can’t” do something.  The universe of possible is much bigger than the universe of impossible.
