If You Were an Atom

You Could Tell Scotty to Beam You Up

Beam Me Up? Teleporting Is Real, Even If Trekkie Transport Isn't | WJCT NEWS

When the team sends the command, the lasers do their work: They suck the delicate quantum information out of atom A and send it into atom B. From the perspective of physics, it's the same as teleporting atom A across the table.

Mmmm seems a bit dicey. Was atom B some close host for the makeup of atom A? What delicate quantum information exists in an atom beyond how many neutrons, electrons, and protons are present?

Leonardo is revered for his technological ingenuity. He conceptualised flying machines, a type of armoured fighting vehicle, concentrated solar power, an adding machine,[6] and the double hull, also outlining a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. Relatively few of his designs were constructed or were even feasible during his lifetime,[nb 2] but some of his smaller inventions, such as an automated bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire, entered the world of manufacturing unheralded.[nb 3] He made substantial discoveries in anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics, but he did not publish his findings and they had no direct influence on later science.[7]
That was back in the 1500s. Information has increased probably in some geometric fashion so back when I was a kid, many things we take for granted couldn't be imagined today. So this might just be a start of something good. Unless we blow ourselves up before we find it.
