Nebulae Internet: Above and Beyond the Cloud
Scientists have made a recent breakthrough in teleportation technology. When I first heard of teleportation, I saw visions of transporting matter from one place to another. Although that is a long term goal, the current research is going into data transport.
By breaking things down to a sub-atomic level, engineers have transported information from one spot to another without that information travelling in between that space. This opens up a huge expanse of data storage and other such implementations.
I don't pretend to understand quantum physics in the deepest sense. To think that teleportation is ruled by a foreign style of chaos differing greatly from conventional physics would leave me with hope for this style of innovation. This field is what will bring us beyond the clouds, into the galaxies and nebulae of space.
I would feel a bit more secure knowing that my information could be on an international space station, far from the physical problems that could affect it here on earth.
