Beam Me Up, Scotty

Well, the original entry was so much better and more informational and all, but the site crashed and deleted the whole thing, so I had to rewrite it in about 3 minutes. Thanks Penn State.

According to this article, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/breakthrough-brings-star-trek-teleport-a-step-closer-451673.html researchers are making headway on teleportation technology.  Through the science of quantum teleportation, researchers have been able to send data 89 miles, which is over 10 times farther than they previously could with this technology.

Before you get too excited, in its current state, there's no way this technology could be used to teleport humans, or even objects.  However, they speculate that it could be used to send important information with a virtually uncrackable code.

What does this mean for humans?  Do you think that we could develop the technology far enough to transport ourselves using teleportation?  The theory of quantum entanglement certainly allows for it, although a whole lot more research needs to be done for that to be possible.

IT seems like a natural progression to me. We are always looking for way to send and receive data faster. Do you know more about the quantum entanglement theory? I don't, but would be curious to hear what it is about.

In this article it says that human teleportation would be like fax, mixing cloning and digitization.
