Is Star Trek’s transporter in our future?

10/1 Sun: 2 pm, at the Twisted Rail in Macedon

Recently Chinese scientists have used a trick of quantum mechanics to teleport an object between Earth and space. Is it only a matter of time before Scotty will be able to beam us up, or is there something about quantum teleportation that makes it impossible? Professor Ed Hach will talk about the strange properties of quantum physics, and how a transporter is only the beginning of the story.

Join us at the Twisted Rail for this fun science presentation!
