Will Teleportation Ever Be Possible?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Forget electric cars, teleportation is the real transportation of the future! OK, that might be a stretch, but scientists actually have had some luck making this sci-fi fantasy a reality… sort of. Trace looks at the current state of teleportation research.

Beam Me Up, Scotty? That Might Take Some Time

“Alas, apart from a tiny handful of experiments on entangled photons, teleportation is, in a practical sense, pure science fiction.”

How Teleportation Will Work

“Ever since the wheel was invented more than 5,000 years ago, people have been inventing new ways to travel faster from one point to another.”

Teleportation and Wormholes: The Science of ‘Jumper’

“When scientists talk about teleportation, they don’t typically mean teleporting matter from one place to another as in the new movie. Rather, teleportation involves capturing the essential information about something – its “quantum state” – to recreate it exactly someplace else.”

Why Don’t We Have Teleportation?

“Theoretical physicist and unstoppable optimist Michio Kaku thinks humanity will achieve a version of teleportation in the real world.”

Quantum teleportation done between distant large objects

“The macroscopic quantum spin state of caesium atoms held in a vessel has been teleported to a second vessel 50 cm away – according physicists in Denmark, Spain and the UK, who have performed the feat.”

Will we just teleport from place to place in the future?

“Believe it or not, scientists have managed to ‘teleport’ some things already. But as for ‘beaming up’, Star Trek-style, either there’s no hope at all… or we’re a very long way off.”

To infinity and beyond: teleporting humans into space

“To begin the teleportation process, every human that is teleported will need to be represented in transferable data.”

Search "Philadelphia experiment"

I’d have to let u go first and see lol. I’d be happy with teleported pizza delivery tbh

how do you teleport a persons soul ? How you teleport the intangible things of a human such as your soul, spirit, mind, your personality ?

MrCubeLord Bx4 November 7, 2018 - 11:44 AM

Could we be able to create an "entangled clone" of human that does the thing we do be anywhere else?

Matt December 14, 2018 - 4:24 AM

it would be awesome if they could make teleportation because if they could teleport humans to other planets by adding the teleportion on a drone in space so we could teleport to other planets

June Eight December 30, 2018 - 9:00 PM

How about the energy needed to recunstruct ?

Elena Perepel January 8, 2019 - 2:16 AM

Teleportation is possible already

Omar Shoqar January 17, 2019 - 9:52 PM

So in the far future we'll be able to use Goku's teleportation technique , right?

Titus Sit January 18, 2019 - 6:47 AM

Teleporting inanimate objects would still be amazing!!! Imagine buying something online and have it be delivered( teleported) to your house in second's!!!!! That would be awesome!!!

russgoyer January 24, 2019 - 6:43 AM

It would never be allowed. And if it didn’t actually happen it would be so regulated that no one would be able afford it.

Linxy February 17, 2019 - 3:40 AM

so what happens if u destroy a human, and reconstruct him 10000x ? which one is "you"

Matheshwara Senthilkumar March 23, 2019 - 2:19 PM

I thought photons won't interact with each other

Zakary Wilson March 28, 2019 - 9:38 PM

beaming could work in a very different way…. if you are able to alter the mass of an object using gravity modification technology… then use light to propel it…. then effectively it could move through optical fibre or through a solid object. This does not require disassembling the object at all, only changing it's material state in reference to the space time…

Mr. J April 9, 2019 - 10:54 AM

If I have a tele-porter I’ll never late for school or work !!

Siavash Kharasi April 14, 2019 - 5:28 PM

I teleport myself everyday! in lucid dreams

yusra al-sabahi April 30, 2019 - 6:30 AM

awesome wish to have this experience

Juan Pedraw May 2, 2019 - 10:48 PM

It's not ever going to happen. To teleport is to move from point A to point B instantaneously. Meaning, you spent 0 seconds to cover n distance.

The formula for speed is distance divided by time. If you teleport, you cover a distance within 0 time. So you divide that distance by 0, and WE ALL KNOW MATH HATES DIVIDING BY 0.

So teleportation, and portals can never be possible. Not even in a million years.

Nobody knows how to build something harder.

Only with some one that two pepole found

James Baum October 23, 2019 - 4:38 PM

He's Right…By Demaiterlizing (can't spell sorry) the host body the Soul, Spirit, Congessness, Would Leave the body Never to rejoin the Reasembled body… Cause you destroyed the original body. The Reasembled body would just be a clone without meoreis to fugtion…

Ristube October 26, 2019 - 4:49 PM

Why couldn’t it be done to something already dead, but less complicated than a human body?

Zaid Chalabi October 31, 2019 - 11:02 AM

I just started thinking about possibility of teleportation in future while im in bed 12 am
And tomorrow is working day
Crazy how ideas come to you at night while in bed lol

Denis Strakhov December 3, 2019 - 1:28 AM

Quantum computing will make it possible

Kuango Seilah January 29, 2020 - 11:15 AM

Michigan Engineering teleported a metal object in 2013 they claim. https://youtu.be/XHjczeJIooc

Bloodreina February 26, 2020 - 4:34 PM

Reconstructed? Mf what about our souls

Clips King April 28, 2020 - 6:04 PM

Let me tell you.
We will never teleport
We will never time travel.
Its beyond human understanding.
I mean just look today, they r struggeling to find an antiodode for corona virus but they cant.
Forget teleportation. Its never happening

DJ S May 28, 2020 - 10:20 AM

🧿👄🧿

subject d 9341 June 6, 2020 - 7:58 AM

no, telportation can not happen, it would be like breaking the laws of physics

Hossein Karimi August 18, 2020 - 4:30 PM

When they want to test this thing on humans for the first time , they should use prisoners with death penalty or life in prison as first humans , because even if they die they havent lost any thing !

Ken drake August 21, 2020 - 7:26 PM

Entanglement 😂

No Name September 27, 2020 - 3:23 AM

Ill give it try, and that’s on trying to be close to my crush.. 🦦

HOLY CRUSADER October 21, 2020 - 1:25 AM

Teleporter goin up

richard klegin November 26, 2020 - 11:52 AM

Just like when the stimimulus checks are coming out . quite asking

Farris Harbi December 15, 2020 - 11:18 AM

I want to shake hands with the first rat that teleports :) He is gonna be famous.

Ristube January 6, 2021 - 5:28 AM

Isn’t it basically the basis of how a fax machine works?

Ristube January 6, 2021 - 5:42 AM

Wouldn’t it make sense to utilize this on a galactic scale to transport humans to the farthest regions and inhospitable or impossible toxicity similar to “Avitar” or a remote control drone with the operator here but controlling the body as if they were inside it?

Malam K.B February 14, 2021 - 12:59 AM

I so much believe in the power of science and technology, but this imagination of teleportation can never be realized in real world

Mohammed Abdul Mazid February 14, 2021 - 10:26 AM

So you telling me if we can achieve teleportation we also achieve cloning, immortality,time travel and what not🙄

Devesh Bhomia March 22, 2021 - 1:17 PM

Now I know we still are very far away from teleportation technology but I also want to know why do we need this deconstructing and reconstructing process. Isn't there any process where we can remove the gap between the destination like "Ground bridge" from Transformers Prime or "Anywhere door" from Doraemon.

FuXed April 23, 2021 - 12:10 AM

I have no doubt in that teleportation will possible one day. Though i think more it will be a door kind of thing. Open your door, set destination, go in/out.

Donald Baum November 15, 2021 - 7:15 PM

Correct

Jalie December 10, 2021 - 9:37 AM

If we can find out how to harness black holes as technology we can figure out how UFO get around and teleportation as a whole. I believe we harnessed this knowledge at one point in ancient history with Petra and other mysterious doorways around the world. Just a theory that came to me in my dreams 🤷🏽‍♀️
