'Star Trek' style teleportation might be possible

The advancement in technology in today’s world is surely quite overwhelming and with every new step towards more advancement we get a little surprised each time. Did you ever think that a seemingly ‘magical’ phenomenon from Star Wars would ever become possible in our real world? We certainly did not. But the physicists at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands led by Ronald Hanson have claimed that they were able to send quantum data from one electron to another, seemingly unconnected electron 10 feet away. And this process was repeated again and again to be sure of what they had achieved.

When this procedure was carried out, the researchers were able to achieve this quantum teleportation over and over with a 100 percent success rate. This phenomenon from Star Wars called the quantum teleportation, if done in a reliable way, can have huge implications for the world of physics. The possibility of this happening will also disapprove Albert Einstein's doubts about the validity of quantum mechanics.

If we think in terms of operating on a larger level as compared to the quantum level, then it could possibly mean that our descendants could one day actually be beamed up in a way similar to what the late Gene Roddenberry envisioned.

''If you believe we are nothing more than a collection of atoms strung together in a particular way, then in principle it should be possible to teleport ourselves from one place to another," Hanson told the Telegraph. ''In practice it's extremely unlikely, but to say it can never work is very dangerous...I would not rule it out, because there's no fundamental law of physics preventing it."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
