Science Magazine has deemed teleportation as 2010's biggest science breakthrough.

Back in March Andrew Cleland and John Martinis from the University of California constructed a device that could move in ways that can only be described through quantum mechanics, the implications of the technology could mean that both teleportation and even time travel are possible.

"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."

A little more in-depth explanation of the experiment can be found here, http://www.sciencemag.org/content/330/6011/1604.short although you have to regester free to read it, but it's still not a through explanation of the engineering methods of teleportation. From my previous understanding, what is teleported is information of the quantum state(s) of the object using entanglement. I don't quite understand how this new experiment relates to this. Another method is to gather all the quantum information of a person's brain, upload this information into a quantum computer, and send this information... [More]

Time travel has not been invented in my lifetime, I would have come back by now with some winning lotto numbers.

once i went back to 1992

I no its just movies but i dont think we should mess around with time travel. once we finished a moment in time we should leave it be. messing with time could cause a ripple in time like the movies show. it seems logical. I means its sound cool but we should be messing with things we shouldnt be messin with lol=D

Time travel has not been invented in my lifetime, I would have come back by now with some winning lotto numbers. It doesn't work like that. Anything happened happened. If you can go back in time, you can only jump into a parallele universe and change the other "you"'s life.

1992? BlazedAzz, I remember that year, dull as dishwater. Sureley there are more interesting years to travel to?

STAR TREK TELOPORTATION IS A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY IT WILL NEVER BE POSSIBLE IT'S ABSURD TO EVEN MENTION IT Wow I didnt know there were quantum physicists on this forum lol. First maybe you want to listen to the experts and open your mind a little bit
