Is Human Teleportation Possible?

I’ve written about the Pew Research Center’s recent study of American attitudes towards future technology. One of the more controversial ideas in the study is teleportation, with only 39% of respondents expecting us to have invented teleportation by 2064. We’ve already invented (or at least discovered) one kind of teleportation: quantum entanglement, which a team of Austrian physicists has recently perfected to 103 dimensions using only two protons. Our growing understanding of entanglement can be really useful in quantum computing, but there’s a big difference between transporting protons and transporting matter, and between transporting individual molecules and transporting systems. And if we ever start trying to transport people, a bigger question emerges. Michio Kaku outlines it here. via Mysterious Universe.
