Mostly in this book I shall specialize upon indications that there exists a transportory force that I shall call Teleportation. I shall be accused of having assembled lies, yarns, hoaxes, and superstitions. To some degree I think so, myself. To some degree, I do not. I offer the data. Charles Fort, Lo! 1931
A teleportation system would change everything ... I’ve got two options: I could break it down to its atoms and somehow try to transport those ... I think Star Trek had a better approach. Covert it into data, a bit like a set of instructions, and beam those up ... Rather than transport the atoms I transport the instructions. Michio Kaku, Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible s1e4: How to Teleport, Science 2009
Scientists here at the Joint Quantum institute have achieved the impossible ... Teleportation really is possible. This is proof of principle: Chris and his team have teleported atoms using nothing but a mysterious connection called Quantum Entanglement. ibid.

Scientists in the Netherlands have moved a step closer to overriding one of Albert Einstein’s most famous objections to the implications of quantum mechanics, which he described as ‘spooky action at a distance’.
In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to reliably teleport information between two quantum bits separated by three meters, or about ten feet.
Quantum teleportation is not the ‘Star Trek’-style movement of people or things; rather, it involves transferring so-called quantum information – in this case what is known as the spin state of an electron – from one place to another without moving the physical matter to which the information is attached.
Classical bits, the basic units of information in computing, can have only one of two values – either 0 or 1. But quantum bits, or qubits, can simultaneously describe many values. They hold out both the possibility of a new generation of faster computing systems and the ability to create completely secure communication networks.

You’d have to take a human being and you’d have to kind of disassemble that human being. And write down the position of every single atom in the body. And then you’d take that information on where all the atoms in the body were and you’d send that information to another place. Geoffrey Landis
Would you still be the same person once you’d put yourself together from raw materials? That would be pretty tricky to do with technology, because it would take I think about er a billion quadrillion bits to write down the position of all atoms in the body. And how would you reassemble them? Geoffrey Landis
