The trek version of teleportation is incredibly improbable needlessly complex and highly destructive. It involved things like death ofthe original article; enough computer power to record every bit of data of every atom down to the quantum level, ultra precision control of energy and matter beams over a distance of up to 60K kilometers, adjusting this feat to compensate for several types of hidden motions such as solar precession, galactic precession and universal motions such as expansion, ability to reassemble atoms of inert matter into a living biological pattern with the detail so fine a complete living personae is reconstructed on the other end. all extremely unlikely....

there were occasional transporter mishaps through outthe startrek series; the mildest of which was kirk and a woman exchanging bodies.
there was one where Mr Scott (in shock and horror) said what made it through was no longer human. i think he may have even dispersed the results into space in order to mercifully end it's suffering. at least he said mercifully it was not alive for long or words to that effect

From the OP's source;
"Quantum entanglement happens when two subatomic particles stay connected no matter how far apart they are. When one particle is disturbed, it instantly affects the entangled partner. It's impossible to tell the state of either particle until one is directly measured, but measuring one particle instantly determines the state of its partner."
How strange that this should be so. It is a mind boggling discovery. There is a secret being cracked here. The consequences of this discovery of entanglement is for me the most important discovery in modern physics. I am a complete novice, but very interested.

With robust quantum teleportation data transmission would be instantaneous and secure.
its a little better than that even. it turns out that what often gets called negative mass or energy is not necessarily exotic matter. It's a term used for a certain class of distortion or expansion of york time. in other words strictly speaking exotic matter is not necessary for warp drive to work. So Dr White was correct when he said he thought he could do away with the requirement for exotic matter.

There working on the concept, although to be fair the technology is in its infancy. Might not be necessary to use exotic matter after all if they can meet the power requirements and generate and sustain a strong enough magnetic field.

SO the other day a me and a friend are out at sea at night fishing, slaying the sand and calico bass, when in between time we start talking about communications and the future. He says that we are all screwed when the next war happens because of nuclear fall out, and devices that generate too much noise to allow aircraft and home base to communicate. The fog of war would be worse than it ever has been in history.
I firmly disagreed. Tried to explain quantum entanglement and communicating via that method. Said some stuff about how you could create a communication network that's nearly fool proof using entangled photons between sender and receiver. Tried to explain how there is no delay anywhere in the communication. He argued that because we can only communicate at the speed of light that we would never be able to relay a signal say from earth to space (or vice versa) fast enough to react. I repeated how quantum entanglement works. He's one of those guys who thinks he's smarter than everyone else. Guess what. guess not. Because from 9pm to 2am I tried to get him to wrap his head around this sort of tech. He just doesn't get it, thinks i'm crazy and making things up to sound as smart as he actually is. Go ahead and wrap your head around that logic. Told him to google it. He said thats a convenient cop out. Because I can't show him a real world working system.
