Gallery: Physicists Discover How to Teleport Energy

 

One of the biggest challenges of building a sustainable future is figuring out how to efficiently move people and objects from one place to another. Electric cars and biofuel-powered planes might be the answer in the short-term, but now a physicist at Tohoku University in Japan has figured out how to teleport energy from one point in the universe to another.

    Readers! don’t be overenthusiastic. Just go to http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=3611711#post3611711 and see the comments of Hotta himself. As per him, this is just a quantum level phenomenon and the energy available beyond that level is so small that even communication isn’t possible. Next, the classical channel is an integral part of the system and “faster-than-light” communication is even THEORETICALLY NOT POSSIBLE.

    Hey, don’t be overenthusiastic. Kindly read what Hotta himself said in the thread at http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=3611711#post3611711. As per him, this is just a quantum level phenomenon and energy transfer beyond that level is so small that even communication isn’t possible, teleporation of energy to space rovers is a far far ……… cry.

    i think it’s similar to Nikola Tesla ideas! to make energy free and available for everyone. someone may not like this idea…

    Quantum mechanics (and physics in general) is ,in my opinion, ahead of its age.
    The applications of this wondrous(and in only in theory to date .unfortunately) technology will boost the human civilization growth (either by peaceful or by destructive means) significantly…
    I actually FEAR the government which will take hold of the first application of teleportation :( yet I hope for a better future….

    Sounds like a future cornerstone of green energy practices. Wind and solar farms could be placed anywhere (the middle of the Pacific, for example) and the energy they produce could be teleported wherever it was needed – and with 100% efficiency! Sounds like science fiction, and it probably is, but this would truly revolutionize human civilization as we know it.
