A new quantum internet? This article, while quite technical, talks about things like teleportation as a reality, not science fiction.

It gets the brain wondering how close we are to some of those Star Trek ideas that seem so far off. It’s all about ‘beaming’ the information from one place to another and I find it fascinating.

If we’re able to get our information from one place to another faster and with great accuracy, it shows we can make great strides for the future. I’m sure there will be more applications for this as time goes by. It only depends on our creativity.

Read about it here.

I hope the next thing they pull from the silver screen science fiction is replicators. It would save so much cooking time!

    I was so excited when I bought this book: Physics of the Impossible. Some of the things discussed include phasers, force fields, teleportation and time travel. I can’t wait to read it.
