Not sure if this has been posted before, I searched and didn't find anything exactly the same.

Story here:http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2010/05/quantum-teleportation-achieved-over-ten-miles-of-free-space.ars

maybe 90+ years or so we'll be Star Trek-style transporting away.

but apparently this will eventually blow Star Trek's transporter out of the water, instantaneously transporting data and eventually, matter, anywhere in space.

Look at your guitar. Is it small, stripy, and honey-producing? If so, you might have gotten it mixed up with a bee.

Quantum Physics is bad-ass. Sounded ridiculous when Heisenberg first introduced his principle of uncertainty, which led to the deduction that it's possible to exchange information faster than at the speed of light, but who's laughing now >: D

The Star Trek transporters always scarred the crap out of me. You stand on the pad, and get pulled apart, then on the other end the transporter makes a perfect duplicate of you.
How can that person really be the same person who beamed?
They can't be, because the person who beamed is fucking dead, man!

Thats great, I just hope they can fix that 89% factor because teleportation isnt something you attempt until it is 100 >.>
Do you play Starcraft 2? Well then you should add Moderas character code: 933!

From what I understand (not much) they're conveying information, not matter. Which technically isn't teleportation.

They are. But they're hoping to teleport matter soon, and get up to the stage where they can teleport something simple (like a virus) in the next decade.

This sounds pretty cool. I doubt it will take 90+ years to get a human transporter. I predict 20-30 years.

If people could eventually be teleported, I have a feeling that our legs would most likely have no purpose anymore.

It would be much easier to get someone pregnant too, I mean you could just ejaculate into the teleporting device and then the sperm would end up in the uterus and fertilise her egg.

Even if they manage to create a perfect copy on the other side, it would probably be dead. How would they transmit the organism's memory and everything else that makes it alive?

I guess if the copy they create is identical down to the momentum of the particles (to ensure continous blood flow) and the electrical charges (for brain activity) then it might be possible.

Maybe.

You are clearly a philosopher.

This is a quite amazing breakthrough! For once my scientific mind has no comment...

I think you are underestimating how quickly science develops. 90+ years is a long freaking time. I think 20-30 years is plenty reasonable.

Edit: ok, maybe I shouldn't have said human, but I think we will be teleporting matter (a bit more complex than a virus) within that time frame. Once that is accomplished, its not far off from a human teleporter.

Its not like the entire US GDP needs to go to teleportation research. Oh wait, the GDP is nonexistent. Nevermind then.

I'll agree that they've got over a big hurdle, but they have to be hitting 100% accuracy each and every time before they can even consider starting to send anything that has substantial mass or is made up of anything more than a single particle, let alone anything that's alive.

get me a megaphone, i'll teleport 'information' all over the place.

I'm not impressed.

Dammit! The pre-edited version was better! It had me loling to no end

OT, for some reason, I have the feeling that if we somehow managed "teleportation" most people would end up slightly loopy, kind of like Deadpool. We'd be the same person with all the same memories, but the constant shifting of our brain would cause some strange quirks to arise.

We might even break the fourth wall a bit O.o

Teleportation allows for the direct manipulation of matter. If it is possible to teleport matter it will also be possible to turn a pile of dirt into a t-bone. What economy?

Firstly, im gonna go out on a limb and say, that if that was possible, the power needed to run the machine, and its maintenence costs, would far outweigh the profit. Also, people probably wouldn't eat "teleported meat"

I also dont understand how teleportation can turn mud into t-bone steak.

If you develop a method to reduce matter to a pure energy pattern and transmit that energy to another location for reassembly into matter who says the reassembly process has to duplicate the original. If you are able to manipulate energy into matter then you would be able to select any pattern that you want it to be assembled as. The original matter is merely an energy source.

Molecules create their own bonds. I am not saying that the teleportation of matter is a reality. I'm saying if the technology is ever developed that manipulation of matter is a much more creative use of that technology than using it as a truck.
