    Teleportation!

    Dutch scientists have unlocked the secret to the sci-fi phenomenon of teleportation, successfully causing an atom to vanish and reappear nearly 10 feet away.

    The Irish Times reports that a team led by Professor Ronald Hanson of Delft University conducted a demonstration in which information encoded into sub-atomic particles was teleported between two points with 100 percent accuracy for the very first time.

    Hanson says that, if a particle can be teleported, there’s no reason to believe the same cannot be done for a human being.

    can't wait to tell hubby. We STILL watch star trek where we find it in syndication.

    Gene Roddenberry was something else. If you really look at some of the ideas he had so long ago, and they are coming to fruition.

    Well, I do not understand entangled particles and how one might be far away and the other close, but it sounds reasonable if used for computers and internet. I'd like more explanation. For people who are Christians, this could explain scientifically how we will be taken up in the clouds to meet Jesus.

    I immediately thought of Willy Wonka.

    I’ve gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here.

    Does anyone really understand it? I sure don't, but it's interesting. How do the particles get entangled to begin with...

    Exactly.

    I've seen STAR TREK, but I've also seen THE FLY. I will not be volunteering for teleportation.

    I so wanna be beamed up, Scotty.

    I bet there's a lot of sci-fi fans high-fiving each other.

    And it really is amazing how sci-fi authors describe technologies decades before their time. Arthur C Clarke is one notable example. I think the good ones keep abreast of the 'out there' research of their time.

    Hair conditioner & a wide toothed comb might fix the problem.
