    Teleportation experiments have been achieved and recently Chinese scientists telported a photon from the Gobi desert to a satellite, 500 km above earths atmosphere, using quantum entanglement.

    The issue with teleportation is that with our current technology, some atoms will theoretically be lost in the process of teleporting a large object.

    The lost atoms aren’t destroyed, as this goes against the laws of physics, they simply disperse from their original configuration. You may think it isn’t a big deal, but for every mechanical part or complex computer module we want to send, missing atoms could cause unforseen weaknesses in machinery and cause computer systems to cease functioning.

    Moreover, machinery and computers are one thing but teleporting people has even more risk. A person could lose random atoms from their vital organs with each teleportation and over time they could have organ failure, due to a loss of matter from their major organs.

    However, it isn’t all doom and gloom, parts for machines and computers will most likely be teleported in pieces and assembled where they are needed. Imagine providing a colony on mars with new building materials and advanced components with a click of a button from Earth! There would be no 7 month trip or millions of dollars of lost revenue, space would begin to become dirt cheap to explore and colonize!

    In addition, i believe physicists will discover more efficient ways to maintain atoms with each generation of teleporters and humanity will one day perfect a system that can teleport anything without any lost atoms!

Few years back, you may have imagined about robots dominating the world; a miniature helicopter capturing photos; or living in Mars. Imagination goes well with creation. We’re on our way. For hundreds of years, science has been doing studies and giving explanations to occurrences that go beyond the human imagination and understanding. Thus, theories are created.
For hundreds of years, technology has been doing a great job in industrialising the world. You step in the land of the first world countries and see for yourself how lifestyle has been advancing. Yet, theory is a theory until it’s proven; technology remains limited. You might wake up one day and see that sci-fi turns into reality. However, what happens next when the clock ticks to ‘Midnight’ and doomsday is for the universe?
