Yesterday, a report came from a tech company in Asia that they are proposing to do Quantum teleporting on humans. So, we have that camp; today we have the other camp with this article stating to do so means death. Personally, I have my doubts around humans or animals of any sort being able to teleport like Star Trek; great concept. However, to do so means breaking down your make up into particles and hopefully without killing you, the particles transport and reassemble themselves and everything remains healthy and functioning. Wish the test subjects all the best.
Remember last week’s video about the trouble with Star Trek’s transporter (a.k.a. a “suicide box”) by CGP Grey, delving into whether the teleported version of yourself would really be, well, you? Henry Reich of Minute Physics has posted a video response with his own resolution to the logical paradox.
