Quantum Teleportation, as imagined in 'Star Trek The Second Generation'

Quantum Teleportation

Back in June of 2004, the individual I have code-named ‘Morgan’ sent me a message saying that one of the most important expressions I would ever encounter in this exploration of the Parallel Universe is “Quantum Teleportation.”  Now, we’re all probably familiar with the concept of “teleportation” — that’s the thing that happens when Kirk says “beam me up, Scotty.”  Now we read some scientists at IBM are starting to take the idea seriously: “…perfect teleportation is indeed possible in principle, but only if the original is destroyed.” 

OK, who wants to go first?
