    Check this out.

    It is very interesting. And is basically saying that it could be posible to use teleportation. Deffinately worth reading, at least the abstract. What does everybody think?

    This looks like some students term paper and it looks well done. However the only idea for teleportation in it which has any merit, in my opinion, is the wormhole idea, which has been studied quite a bit by GR enthusiasts. However this is only possible within the theoretical framework and this does not mean that is actually possible for such a thing to exist. The theoretical framework is like a language in which these things called wormholes can be described like many other things which do not exist can be described, so it in no way implies that it is actually possible for such a thing to exist, let alone whether it is possible to create one.

    The rest of the ideas for teleportation are all science fiction. In particular, the ideas of using other dimensions or quantum entanglement are simply a very poor understanding of physics and these phenomenon. As for the "Polarizable-Vacuum Representation of General Relativity ", this sounds like the premature application of underdeveloped physics and amounts to little more than technobabble --- in my opinion.

    I dont know id give it chance, everything under present application is defined ,understood and used in a 3 dimensional context only.

    However its quite clear the universe doesnt just operate in 3 dimension's.

    So writing it off as unlikely or impossible is surely only a premature answer with the paradigm of present theory's, which are clearly incomplete and most likely erronous in places as they do not wholely compliment each other yet, dissallowing any form of unification.

    I Just wanted to add that Dr. Franklin B Mead Jr. recived the International Symposium Beamed Energy Propulsion leadership award in Japan just a few weeks ago for this project. He also talked about using energy transfer technology like laser propulsion.

    Actually, photons can be teleported using quantum entanglement. It will never - of course - be practical for macroscopic objects, though.
    And God said: Div(E) = \rho / \epsilon_0, Curl(E) = - \partial(B,t), Div(B) = 0, Curl(B) = \mu_0 (j + \epsilon_0 \partial(E,t)). And there was light.

    Hmm... If you could control that, couldn't it be used for faster-than-light communications? A stream of photons, teleported one by one to the receiver, and interpreted into digital information...

    Nope. In order to 'recieve' the teleported photon from your own half of the entangled pair, you must have certain information about the results of the entanglement process. And that information cannot be transmitted FTL. Sorry.

    Everything is possible. Theoritically of course we could be teleported. The problem is the huge amount of energy and information we should spend.
    Imagine the errors that will come out from the computers which will make the infinite calculations for each electron.

    That being far from the biggest problem. Teleportation relies on entangling matter and then transporting some of it to the recieving station. Not only does creating macroscopic amounts of entangled matter pose a daunting challenge, it would be impossible to transport it in significant amounts over significant distances.

    i would think that even if teleportation was possible that you could still only teleport the speed of light. and it would probably take more energy, too. and, even if we could, who knows what would happen to living objects?

    By all means, correct me if I err, but am I not correct in saying that teleportation has aready taken place? I seem to vaguely remember hearing of a group of quantum scientists who "teleported" an atom from one place to another seemingly instantly. Again, if any of you hve any informaion in this, I would love to partake.
    Also of the Discovery.ca forum

    Yes there have been a few experiments in teleportation. I think three or so groups have been able to teleport particles of something but I don't remeber what. I think its in the link that is posted at the top. It is kind of long but deffinatly worth reading through, I had to read it for school and write a report on it but I still thought it was very cool.

    Here is a good general discussion of the subject. It includes further links for more detailed information:
