Is Teleportation Possible and How Much Time Does It Require?

///Is Teleportation Possible and How Much Time Does It Require?

teleportationIn science fiction (such as “Star Trek”), teleportation is a usual thing. But how much time and effort is necessary to submit the data required for human teleportation? Students at the Physics Department of the University of Leicester Declan Roberts, James Nelms, Suzanne Thomas and David Starkey decided to answer this difficult question.

The students found that the energy required for teleportation of one individual depends on the bandwidth, which automatically means less time, but the increase in power consumption.

In their work, the students explored the possibility of teleportation of one person on the Earth’s surface into space orbit. Before the teleportation starts, each person should be ‘submitted’ to the form of data that can be sent. At baseline the data will be transmitted in pairs of DNA in each cell.

All information of each human cell is estimated to take about 10^10 bits, and each cell will contain enough information to produce any other type of body cell.

Recovery of human thinking is not an easy task. The complete data about the traveler’s brain should take about 2,6 x 10^42 bits. Having analyzed the basic data about the person, the students managed to calculate the time and power required to teleport people from the Earth to the chosen point in space.

It was found that the time required for the full human teleportation from Earth to space is a huge problem. Even with the 29.5-30 GHz bandwidth 4,85 x 10^15 years would be required. Universe is 14 billion years old (14 x 10^9), so the teleportation of one person takes 350,000 times longer than the age of our universe. Perhaps it is faster to walk on foot…

Unfortunately, fast and energy-efficient teleportation is not available at the moment, and seems to remain so for quite a long time…

What Is an Intuitive Empath and How to Recognize If You Are One

October 22nd, 2016|

Intuitive empath is a person who has an unusual capacity for sensing and understanding the feelings of others. Could you be one? Intuitive empaths know what others feel without needing to be told, and they have an unusually sharp sense for whether someone is being truthful or lying. For this reason, many self-proclaimed intuitive empaths go into the healing professions. There's a lot of reported evidence from psychologists for the existence of empaths, [...]

7 Types of People Who Lie as Easily as They Breathe (and How to Spot Them)

September 7th, 2017|

There are certain people who lie much more than others. I guess you can call it pathological. Well, there are ways to spot them as well. They say that every one of us lies at some point or the other. I believe that’s true. I know I can tell lies if I need to, but mostly to protect someone I love or when I feel like I am in danger, you [...]
