Thanks to physics, and the truly bizarre quirks of quarks, those Star Trek style teleporters may be more than fiction.

A strange discovery by quantum physicists at the University of California Santa Barbara means that an object you can see in front of you may exist simultaneously in a parallel universe -- a multi-state condition that has scientists theorizing that teleportation or even time travel may be much more than just the plaything of science fiction writers.

Until this year, all human-made objects have moved according to the laws of classical mechanics, the rules governing ordinary objects. Toss a ball in the air and it falls back to Earth. Drop a coin from your roof and it falls into your yard. But back in March, a group of researchers designed a gadget that moves in ways that can only be described by quantum mechanics -- the set of rules that governs the behavior of tiny things like molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles.

And the implication -- that teleportation and even time travel may someday, somehow be a reality -- is so groundbreaking that Science magazine has labelled it the most significant scientific advance of 2010.

Manipulating macro objects by altering their quantum states.  A lot of possibilities there.

Interesting indeed. See, I wonder whose millitary will be the first to get their hands on one. They could just quickly teleport a hit squad into the offices of any...oh i can't go on.

As long as it stops buttered toast hitting the floor butterside down, i'm all for it ;)

I'm not so sure that existing simultaneously in alternate realities equals actual travel.  I think we exist in all our probable realities right here...and right now.  Maybe they have found proof of this.  Since we exist in all places right now it would only be a matter of focus to "time travel"...right? Isn't this how quantum particles work...they only change when consciousness observes them? Then that would make perfect sense. Any one else of the same thought?

the idea of flying humans was absurd at one time. And actually there's good theory of how to transport physcial objects, were just not quite there scientifically yet but you see. If not I'm sure one of your ancestors will.

Cool article, very interesting to see what the science world has been up to this year! Next year should be promising as well!!

Teleporting living cells will remain an issue I think in this case but if they are ever successful in teleporting humans(alive :P)then many things would come into
question like concepts like soul and ghosts(coz no soul no ghost :P ).
Personally I don't think that this would ever be possible.

Edit; All of the video segments from that interview are on the upper right side of the main page for this video. Interesting interview, as always with Kaku.

Teleportation might be possible but time travel will never be, at least in the same realm.
