United States Air Force Teleportation Physics Study
    #3415031 - 11/27/04 05:09 AM (12 years, 16 days ago)

The USAF has recently funded research to study the physics of teleportation. Here is a link to the documents of the study. Any physics geeks out there? Tell us what you think.

I quickly went over the paper and the first thing that hit me was how many assumptions were made. You cant read more than 2 sentences without coming across a huge assumption.

Also, for a scientific paper, especially this theoretical and specialized, there are not enough references and there was also very little background given in the area of past research. In the intro, he took more time covering past sci-fi and psychic references to TP than he spent covering theoretical background, then he just jumps into mathmatical equations.

He also never attemps to cover the physical limitations and possible applications of his theories. Its one thing to manipulate mathmatics under a long list of assumptions and hypotheses, but it doesnt mean anything if there isnt even a way to test it. We also need to consider that all of these crazy calculations assume that our physical/mathematical model of the universe accuratly describes what is going on, even on the quantum level.

In other words, I think he's full of shit lol.

He probably is full of shit, but it was good enough for the USAF. They paid $25,000 of our tax dollars for that study.
