Puts me in mind of the Greg Bear series of SciFi books ..
Forge of God ..Eon ..Slant etc ..
The stories Theorised moving vast distances accross space by manipulating the properties of materials at the sub atomic level ..
Changing properties of particles such as relative postion in space time ..thus it moved..
damned fine writing imo..certainly had me gripped.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Teleportation is a fun concept, obviously me "experience" of it is via Star Trek, but the idea of stepping into some chamber and being disassembled and sent to the next room or to another country and reassembled piece by piece, it's an incredible idea, and I do hope it becomes reality... :)

Of course, if it does, there'll still be people saying "Beam me up Scotty", even though by then it'll have lost all meaning, but it'll happen, someday... :)

There will have a VERY rigorous security system involved as it's equivalent to building a human being. Otherwise, what's to stop a second, or even more, copy being made?

As an aside it also means destroyong the original version at the transmitting site. Loads of potential for complication there!

I read somewhere about the theoretical bandwidth requirements. Not very practical with current technology :)

After calculating the amount of information encapsulated in a typical human brain, the total data content was shown to be 2.6x10^42 bits.
...
Now, the trick is to transfer all that information — and quickly. In Star Trek, it takes about two to three seconds. But in reality, it would take considerably more. Assuming a bandwidth rate of about 29 to 30 GHz (a somewhat conservative figure based on current technologies), it would take 4.85x10^15 years.

Reminds me of the film TimeLine (worth watching) ok for a few jumps but then your body starts re-assembling slightly out of line by mm. Not a lot of good for your arteries

With the age of the Universe currently reckoned to be 13.798 ×10^9 years we're nearly 60% there.

Not long to wait then...

I think man will have naffed the planet completely by then (selefield today!!)

4.85 x 10^15 years = 4.85 quadrillion years
13.798 ×10^9 years = 13.798 billion years

A mere blink of the cosmological eye.

Non-News: It was naturally occurring background radiation.

With the sensitivity of the monitoring kit they have in a place like that I'm surprised there isn't an alert every time everyone brings in an extra banana in his lunchbox....

But the thing is, everyday computing was considered as "not very practical" in the 1950s, because the technology back then that was current wasn't up to the job and was massive, then 60 years later, we have compact, handheld computers (aka smartphones and tablets) for every day use, so you never know what technology there may be in a century, assuming we don't blow ourselves up of course... :p

After all, they're saying that the next decade may be the age of the Petabyte, the 90's was the Megabyte, the 00's was the Gigabyte, the current decade (the 10's) is the Terabyte, so the next logical step is the Petabyte, in 100 years time, well, who knows, we may have storage devices that can hold millions of Geopbytes or more... :)

Progress is a marveilous thing
Brick layers still building houses in the rain by hand! (I should know!)

That says it all. Don't build on unstable foundations.
Don't rush before the technology is there. (don't skimp on the cement!)

Not forgetting Brundlefly, and that wasn't even wireless.
