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.
