Are We On the Brink of a Scientific Breakthrough with Human Teleportation?

"Beam me up, Scotty!"  A phrase that can be taken literally in the near future?  Dutch scientists have unlocked the secret to the sci-fi phenomenon of human teleportation, or so it seems.

The Irish Times reports that a team led by Professor Ronald Hanson of Delft University conducted a demonstration where encoded information was transformed into sub-atomic particles and teleported between two points with 100 percent accuracy for the first time ever!  Hanson states:

"If you believe we are nothing more than a collection of atoms strung together in a particular way, then in principle it should be possible to teleport ourselves from one place to another.  In practice, it's extremely unlikely, but to say it can never work is very dangerous.  I would not rule it out because there's no fundamental law of physics preventing it."

A future experiment will include teleportation from one building to another, over 4,000 feet away.

The last attempt to teleport information was conducted in Maryland in 2009 and had a success rate of only once every 100 million tries.
