Here's All Science Knows About Teleportation, And Why Humans Shouldn't Do It
Teleportation sounded like an amazing thing for a long time, until scientists realized the only way to do it would be to destroy you as a person. Yeah, unfortunately teleportation wouldn't work like the Portkey in Harry Potter, but instead more like a 3D printer. Your original body would be vaporized, it's parts analyzed, and then reconfigured in a machine with the exact same components somewhere else. Of course, we could be wrong, but it's assumed that the person who comes out on the other side would for all intents and purposes be a new person without any of the memories that make you...well you. The good news is none of this will be achieved in your lifetime, or even your great grandchildren's...so no need to worry about relatives trying to force you into some pod to transport you to Hawaii in your old age.
