Russia to build teleporter within 20 years

The multi-trillion dollar endeavour could see teleportation become a reality within only two decades.
It might have been a staple for Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise, but today the idea of building a device that can instantaneously teleport someone from one place to another remains as firmly rooted in the realms of science fiction as it had when Star Trek was first broadcast.

This however could soon be set to change thanks to an ambitious new Kremlin-backed research program which aims to build a working teleportation device by the year 2035.

"It sounds fantastical today, but there have been successful experiments at Stanford at the molecular level," said technology investor Alexander Galitsky.
"Much of the tech we have today was drawn from science fiction films 20 years ago."

The plans are part of a long-term road map for development of the Russian cybernetics market which also includes the creation of a state-of-the-art human-computer brain interface.

Given that no actual mechanism for achieving teleportation even exists yet however it seems as though the project may simply be a little bit too ambitious for its own good.

  Perhaps you have never used a wifi device then, or bluetooth? or a mobile phone?  All transmit info/images/video without a cable...

How is what has been done any different then using a laser to finely record the parameters of an object, and then using a rapid prototyping machine somewhere else to make a copy? Not teleportation, but tele-manufacturing??

I don't think that anyone has succeeded in manufacturing aluminum out of elementary particles, or whatever these pipe-dreamers expect entanglement to accomplish in this vein. That would be the technology. Who cares if it's instantaneous? Harte

Yeah, just wait until one of the Scientists working on it decides to test it out himself and fails to notice the small housefly that has buzzed it's way into the chamber with him! Be afraid. Be very afraid.....

I get what you wanted to say but sending signal using wave is not the same as break down object into nano particle then send them through a tunnel If it's just receiving signal then recreate the object on the other side, it's called "clone" or "3D printing", not teleportation.

Remember this scene in the first Star Trek movie?

Quantum entanglement works across vast distances through a resonance effect. Kaluza Klein theory shows that the Unified Field Theory can be completed by considering more than 3 spatial dimensions. Same works for portals. Create a strong electromagnetic disturbance "torsion field" that resonates with another one and slip things outside normal spatial dimensions. Einstein Rosen bridge. Worked pretty well in the Philidelphia Experiment.

Dude...come on.  Bluetooth, mobile phone....that's magic of course...duh.  We're talking about actual science here.
