The idea of teleportation as a transportory force is well established in the genre of science fiction. But in 1993 it was discovered that remarkably, a form of teleportation can actually be realised by exploiting effects from quantum physics. The process has become a cornerstone of the modern subject of quantum computation which more generally, exploits quantum effects to provide a variety of extraordinary new possibilities for information processing and communication. In this talk we will give an intuitive account of the strange quantum features that underlie teleportation and then discuss a variety of intriguing features of the process itself.
