This type of experiment has been going on for years. Good to see this breakthrough.

Ach du Leiber!

Now when do I get my Studebaker saucer to fly to Tau Ceti and check out their warrior liger girls? [Eek!]

I'm floored by this. We're going to hear "Quantum Tunneling" in every sci-fi movie over the next 10 years. I can actually hear Scott Bakula saying "Activate the Quantum Tunnel" in my head.

I can't find the post or remember what it was in reference too.. but we were talking about intelligence or genius.

Now.. these German Physicist is what i'm talking about when I say "intelligent" and "genius"

Figuring out there is something faster than the speed of light, and then doing it.. That takes intelligence and pure genius.

So.. from now on... this is reference point of intelligence.

For example... If I say.. this is the bar level of intelligence the President of the United States should have... this is what i'm refering to.

This is what I mean by "intelligent" from now on.

Will that be as Sam Beckett, or as Captain Archer? Or will the characters be able to catch up to each other now for a crossover episode?

The world is what we make it. And fortunately or unfortunately there are no rules or categories that stay true over time.

That's a quote of myself from 5 years ago. You can read the topic here.

Man, I feel like I just went through one of those tunnels somehow, and only just now realized it. [tipsy]

Well said Tobias.

These quantum experiments just scare the hell out of standard mainstream physicists.

Photons can do it, we can do it.

Just imagine that this experiment suggests that an object can have no limit to distance. We could be at the other end of the universe and back before we left.

Time travel? A gent I met, a physicist brought up these experiments a while ago here's his link:

Cool stuff Greg. It seems so inefficient to have to send an entire organism through time though.

It seems much more practical (if I can use that word in such a hypothetical scenario) to send selective parts of just the brain.

Like say, a few well selected "hyper neurons". If done right the amount of matter that would have to be sent would be extraordinarily less and still allow for the brain to record information.

Crazy huh? [Yes]

Tobias, just wait for the computer applications based on this experiment.

Look, I have to confess, I was on top of these experiments for a very long time. Even wrote about it in college.

It's far too complicated for the layman but this experiment says more about the power of the human spirit and human mind that would knock people's socks off.

Matter of fact, I'm in conversations with many of my heroes in physics right now about this data.

Star Trek just got one warp factor closer.
