Now This, Will be Impressive

Updated on July 26, 2011

Quantum Physics

The Experiment

Well it will be if they succeed.

Scientists have now started experimenting with quantum physics. In a previous bilocation experiment, they were able to see a sliver fluctuate the distance of a single atom’s nucleus. See:

Now, they say they are ready to try an experiment far more ambitious.

They are going to try to make a visible glass object exist in two places at the same time.

They believe that if they are able to do this, whatever happens to one object, the exact same will happen to the other.

If they are successful, it will certainly be one for the history books.

As quantum mechanics goes, this will be easily as big as the double slit experiment. See:

Star Trek's Transporter

The Possibilities

This could be compared to being something similar to a transporter in “Star Trek”.

Once again, if successful, even over this short distance, they believe that the same principle could be used even over light years of distance.

It is thought that: if information is put on one computer, it will instantly appear on a next computer, even if they are in no way connected.

If correctly utilized, it is believed that information transfers inside computers could also be instantaneous.

Supposedly, this technology is being developed for telecommunication purposes. I however, would be interested in who was actually funding these experiments, as I am sure that the possible military uses for this technology has not been overlooked.

That having been said does not take away the fact that this is truly a very ambitious experiment and if successful, will be very impressive.

I wish them the best and look forward to quantum physics taking the lead in the scientific arena.

In my opinion, a success here could signify changes that could be compared with those at the introduction of electricity.

      So cool. Love it! god knows where all this technology will lead. It is fascinating though. Thanks rafken.

      This is exciting stuff, this along with the concept of nanotechnology will change our world and be the impetus of a new definition for physics. I can't wait!

      Oh come on! If you're a scientist quantum physics is right up your alley. You got the tools. You got the talent. Try to prove a dream. ?^?^? (I'm looking for places to put my happy emoticons.)

      let's face it, we all thought the communicators used by Captain Kirk were so far in the future and now most of us have a phone in our pocket- so maybe this will be a reality

      That is very exciting. I'd like to do some more reading about it. Do you have a link to any information on the experiment with the glass object?

      Btw, the link to "Is reality a Myth" is broken.

      Every time I think of the possibility of teleportation, my mind always goes to "The Jaunt" By Stephen King (Short story in The Twilight Zone). Where nothing living could be transported. Anything sent through alive would always die because inside was eternity.

      A practical application of Quantum Physics if I've ever seen one. Just think a hot Pizzeria Pizza right from the oven right to your dining room table, ain't science wonderful! Rafken another super HUB, Peter

      Very cool.
