Teleportation: The Ultimate Ticket to Ride

  • Colin P. Williams
  • Scott H. Clearwater


In science fiction stories, teleportation is usually depicted as a routine means of relocating an object by a process of dissociation, information transmission, and reconstitution. When all goes well, the original object is scanned and disassembled at one place only to shimmer reassuringly back into existence at another. Occasional blunders corrupt the object en route or leave it suspended in some nebulous state. Hapless bit-part actors are especially prone to difficulties.
