It works in the movies, Star Trek, The Fly etc... But is instantaneous teleportation of human beings possible? No problemo! According to a magazine article, "If you worked out the location of each atom in your body, and recorded all that information on CD-Roms which were than stored in a cube, that cube would need to have sides almost 1000km long", says Professor Samuel Braunstein. "Than it would take 100 million centuries to transmit that information." [that quick?] However computing power doubles every 18 months. "If this continues to hold true, in a century we might be in a position where we can start thinking about teleporting a human being." says the Prof. Its already been done with light, using 'Quantum teleportation', light was teleported over a distance of one meter!. Wahay! erm wouldn't it have been easier to just beam some light over one meter? [ssshhh!] But wait just think of the possibilities, scrambling Eric Scott's atoms with say Estella Warren's atoms mmmmm Estella's atoms... and than beaming them into the next room and than looking in horror at the results, hmmmm... Beam me up Scotty!
