Teleportation

There are then aboutin the human body.

There are plans for 10GB/s data links using microwaves. Suppose these frequencies were used to teleport the human body. Teleportation is a bit misleading – what would actually be transported would be the information in the human body – the structure of molecules and the state of each atom. If one bit of information needed to be sent for each atom in the human body – a very conservative estimate – thenof information would need to be sent. At the rate ofthis would take

In one year there areso to transmit all the information in the human body would take at least

This is many times longer than the human lifetime.

You may think that the data could be transmitted faster by using higher frequencies, but using higher frequencies means using much more power and increasing errors.

In practice therefore teleportation will be impossible.
