    Actually ... no, they didn't.

    What they DID was transmit the information from one proton to another, across vast distances.

    This has been suggested as a possibility for a new type of "wireless" computer network.

    Or ... better yet ... a new means of instant communication between space probes and Earth control. 
    No more growing communications lag as the probe travels further away.

    It would be nice not having to wait for a package that's stuck in the holiday limbo. I must have my precious perfumes! They were supposed to be here like 5 days ago!
