News flash!  Teleportation is real!  Unfortunately, one of the barriers is still the sheer volume of data it would take to communicate the information about the state of every atom in a human body.  And, of course, “at the other end of the transporter, you need to have some blob of atoms that represents Captain Kirk but has no information in it. I mean, what would that look like?”  If the first answer that came to your mind was William Shatner, shame on you! (And me, too! :-o)
