Luc Montagnier, corecipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering HIV, claimed to have teleported DNA. Montagnier described an experiment wherein DNA's faint electromagnetic signature made an "imprint" in the water of one test tube and was then conveyed to the water in another test tube, where the ghost DNA was enzymatically reconstituted. Some scientists objected that water's memory would last mere picoseconds, and others said that the "empty" tube was contaminated. | Harper's Magazine
