Traveling for some is a pleasure but there are times, such as during the daily commute, when getting from A to B is just a tedious and often laborious necessity.

We look with envy at our futuristic cartoon and film heroes who simply teleport from place to place, disappearing in one location and appearing just seconds later at their desired destination. This novel idea, once thought to be rooted firmly in the imagination of science-fiction authors, may be one step closer to becoming a reality.

Teleportation may be on its way. New technology utilizes a beam of light to attract objects (you and me?). Instead of boarding a plane, we’d pay to have someone at our destination turn on a gigantic lamp. A real-life "tractor beam," of the kind "Scotty" used on "Star Trek" to attract objects has been developed by scientists.

For the last ten years, theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of "entanglement" may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum information–and human beings?

Once considered impossible, in 1993 a team of scientists calculated that teleportation could work in principle using quantum laws. Quantum teleportation harnesses the "entanglement" law to transmit particle-sized bites of information across potentially vast distances in an instant.
