    Sorry. Every time I post a link it doesn't work the first time until I edit and re -post. Anyone know why?

    Sounds promising but at the rate things are going, we would have eradicated ourselves off this planet long before teleportation of objects (particularly organic ones) can be done from one place to another.

    Peter,
    If you have a signature, then a link as the last line of your post always gets scrogged. To prevent this, just put an extra blank line after the link.

    There was a very interesting show on The Discovery Channel called The Science Of Star Trek. It discussed the possibilty of "beaming" and warp drive systems. If they ever rerun it, I suggest you check it out.

    Jasen: I love your sig image! Bravo!
    Neil: You're starting to sound as pessimistic as I am becoming (wondering, for example, if we'll ever send humans to Mars and back to the Moon).
    As for that Science of Star Trek documentary: As I recall, the producers held that teleportation is the least likely Trek feature ever to come to pass. Physicists almost recoil at the sheer magnitude of such a concept.

    Believe it or not, teleportation is one of the reasons I can never become a real Star Trek fan. Ever since I was a kid, the concept has seemed too far fetched and too... "easy" for me, too much for my suspension of disbelief, even in a sci-fi movie... ain't that something?
    That is one of the reasons I LOVE Babylon 5 universe so much more, it is much easier for me to stomach.

    Yes, but be careful, or else you'll end up like that poor fellow who turned into a fly!

    That's pretty cool, but teleportation of people probably won't happen for a few generations, if at all.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    I don't think teleportation will ever come about because the evil oil companies will stamp it out... [​IMG]
    BTW, this sounds like a Martin Ortiz topic. Where is Martin? Haven't seen him post in awhile...
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    By the time it can be done we will probably have depleted all of our oil on Earth anyhow [​IMG]
    You have to wonder though, what kind of repairmen we'd have in the future. What if something goes wrong with the teleporter and half you goes to Zimbabwe and another half to Maui? How ya fix that litle problem [​IMG] (Ahhh...fill out a HEAT ticket and we'll get to it by the end of the week [​IMG] can ya tell what industry i am in?)
