Cold fusion isn't done yet. It was supposedly done in the laboratory once, but has not be repeated. It was either done by lairs or as a fluke. The number of people working on it suggests to me that if it is possible, it will eventually happen. Hot fusion is going well, with only one more major hurdle to cross before we get an incredibly powerful source of electric power. My guess would be we'll have the hot power within the next ten to twenty years. I believe this because I have see the work with my own eyes.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

That's my point, Cliff.
I'm just saying it's probably premature to announce the toppling of the Special Theory of Relativity based on an 8 paragraph news article.
Woke up.

NRQM has offered "faster than light" phenomena since about the same time as Relativity was introduced. Whether its the phase velocity of a wave or the spooky action at a distance of "entangled" particles... nothing new.

What seems to keep the notion of large scale teleportation out of practical reality is more akin to the second law of thermodynamics and Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle. Remember that even a laser beam which is about a pinpoint in diameter when it leaves the earth will spread out to about five miles in diameter by the time it is reflected and gets back here. That's due to the simple quantum mechanics involved and not atmospheric distortion. Add in effects of our atmosphere and you can imagine how complex the simple pencil of coherent light gets on its trip there and back.

dr. hau slows light
stops it cold

in gas, a second
beam revives the first

and things can be
two places at once
