I've seen news posted about this on just about every tech site I have visited but in case you hadn't heard about it yet, an Australian-based research team has teleported a message-encoded laser beam - bringing the science fiction fantasy of "beaming" humans from one place to another a step closer. Friends in school used to tell me stories like this from their physics classes and how humans could maybe one day be teleported, maybe we aren't as far away as we think from the famous Star Trek style transportation.

But for a human to be teleported, a machine would have to be built that could pinpoint and analyse the trillions and trillions of atoms that make up the human body.Quantum teleporting is problematic for humans because the original is destroyed in the process of creating the replica.
