The John Glenn facility of NASA in Cleveland OH is working on 1) teleportation & 2) breaking the


speed of light barrier, which amounts to (in over-simplification) warp speed/time travel. At present, 20 photons of light can be teleported across a room (increased from 1 photon in 1996 in Arizona). How long will it take us to learn how to transport a human being any distance and to perfect warp speed for interstellar travel? IMAGE: www.nasa.gov/centers/glenn/images; PD

    Cool. I know that something happens to photons when they go through the process. They are not quite the same. I must look into that!

    Teleportation of photons was first reported in the American Southwest in 1996. Sub-atomic changes occur during teleportation and these changes, which may prove morbid or fatal, must be addressed before sending objects or persons through the process.
