My partner and I need all the information possible on teleportation
as in transporting objects from place to place.
You can answer me here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help will be appreciated.
For the latest info on teleportation, check out the most recent
edition of the SF Eng Tech Man (Star Fleet Engineer's Technical
Manual), chapter 6, Star Fleet Academy Press, San Francisco,
Science fiction is stuffed with stories and speculations about
teleportation. Larry Niven, for example, wrote a whole series of
stories involving teleportation devices with the amusing restriction
that things like energy and momentum were still conserved, so that,
for example, teleporting uphill made you colder and downhill made you
warmer. Teleportation is a problem mostly, I think, because from the
viewpoint of special relativity it violates "causality." That is, if
you could teleport things, than from the viewpoint of certain
observers you would be able to arrange effects to precede causes.
