Hey Mr. Broad Assumptions...first of all, the mainstream media reported back in 2004 that Austrian researchers had teleported photons across the Danube River in Vienna.
oh wait so are we having a discussion about the feasibility of teleportation or are we talking about teleporting organic material (i.e. humans) on a transplanetary scale into an uninhabitable environment you can supposedly breathe in?
In order to understand these things, you have to look at our base physiology and its relation to the "space" around you in a different way.
and if you do, you'd understand that they're two very different types of matter, or what is really being teleported in the first place
Quantum teleportation is one of those mysterious smoke and mirrors tricks which always captures headlines. Although it is called teleportation, no matter is shifted. Instead it is the quantum state of one object that is transferred to another object. This was first demonstrated using two light beams, in which the quantum state of one light beam was transferred to a second light beam. Next up, the teleportation of quantum states between single ions was achieved. Now, in an interesting development, physicists have managed to teleport the quantum state of a light beam to a large group of cesium atoms.
So, how do you teleport a quantum state? First you must create a pair of particles that are in an entangled state. These particles are then shared between the receiver and the sender. The sender takes the object to be teleported and the entangled particle and performs a joint measurement on them. The sender then tells the receiver the result of that measurement, who uses that information to perform a local operation on the entangled particle. These operations cause the object's quantum state to be transfered from the object to the receiver's entangled particle. Hence teleportation is achieved.*
easier to accomplish that with photons than actual people. Put your little tinfoil spin on that however you want (i.e., this is the part where you reject the source as status quo academia affiliated), but the explanation is there. (On the other hand, for all the claims of the existence of a jump room Basiago really breaks down the function of such technology with "uh, i have no idea how it works"). The only thing that is being transported is information about the state of photons, and as recently as I can find an example to today they've only done this within a range of about 10 miles. Last I checked, it's a lot farther from here to Mars, although that may be what the establishment wants me to think and Mars is really in my neighbor's basement behind a book case. Also, in the scientific field a human (and, by extension any kind of particulate) is definitely composed of matter, while it's arguable whether or not photons are composed of matter, and what you believe depends on whether the mass of photons in a state of rest or movement (speed of light) holds more credence.
Status quo science regarding the actuality to our existance and the universe is totally bunk, and leaves out a good portion of other underlying aspects to how it all relates with eachother.
Very comprehensive assessment
I don't know why you seem to feel the need to go out of your way to trash me all the time...but hey, do what you must haha.
your innate capacity to put yourself on tee for ridicule is somewhere between pantherclaw's and pffl's.
