Atom scale teleportation on the verge of reality

A recent Engadget article suggests that a team of Australian physicists have come up with a simple-sounding method of teleporting atoms by bringing the matter to near absolute zero temperatures.

Although the chance of life as we know it on the planet is improbable as the orbit is very close to the star.
