Suppose in Sql server I have two temporary tables,@temp_table_One, and @temp_table_Two

What I need to do is to copy the contents of temp_table_One into temp_table_Two. How would I do this using Sql? (Assume no data exists in temp_table_Two)

Declare @temp_table_One
 id int,
 name varchar(30) null,
 address varchar(150)

Declare @temp_table_Two
 id int,
 name varchar(30) null,
 address varchar(150)
