Physics students have calculated the time it would take to teleport someone from one place to another.

Red Orbit said:

Four University of Leicester physics students published a paper in the School’s Journal of Physics Special Topics explaining that the energy required to teleport one person is shown to be dependent on bandwidth, meaning a decrease in time creates an increase in power consumption.

Deconstructing and reconstructing a human being. You wouldn't be the same person, no matter what.

Their calculations was using existing computer power.  The enterprise started with more computer poor than the current availbe power on earth today.  Then kirk upgraded his computer power, by converting one of rec. Deck to computer power.

There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.

I agree with ZaraKitty....even though I'd love for teleportation to be possible, I don't think it is cause it means taking a body apart, atom by atom, to be able to scan it and send it to its destination.....isn't that going to kill the 'original' person?

I think wormholes are a better idea: they are just a 'tunnel' where we could travel really really fast, at the speed of light.............maybe.

I was thinking of a movie where they did just that.  They would scan you send the info through the teleport, and then kill the origanal.  So it was a copy machine.  This could have been a new twilight  @

No they don't. The limitation in teleportation speed is based on the bandwidth of the communication channel. That is completely different from computing power.

I seriously doubt that quantum teleportation will be used for anything other than secure information transfer. You are just sending information after all, not matter.

To teleport a human being you would still need a pile of oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, etc. atoms at the destination to reconstruct the person.

It probably won't happen in my lifetime, but it may in yours.  I really hope it becomes possible without the nastiness of pulling apart bodies and just moving them from here to there.  I keep envisioning the movie, The Fly, the original with Vincent Price.

In the movie Timeline, even though it was time travel, you could only go back and forth a few times before your cells were so out of alignment you wouldn't survive. In Dune the Guild folded space for travel, sort of a wormhole idea.

My thought is the deconstructing part would really hurt.

A data burst could handle it.
