      I don’t know, but it’s an interesting thought!

      There is a process called quantum teleportation, which has allowed physicists to transmit data almost instantly between two points, even if the two points are extremely far apart. They have only been able to do this with molecules though, so it’s a long way from being able to transport a person.

      This is a really good question to ask a physicist and they will be able to give you a much more accurate, honest answer than me.
