teletransport

teletransport

To transport a material object (people, animals, anything, actually) to a new location by decomposing its molecular structure into atomic elements, transmitting those elements through the cosmos and rebuilding them in the new venue... without loss, one would hope. Not exactly a future goal of the airlines, surely the hotel and resort industry would benefit greatly. If the scientific explanation of this term is not precise enough, feel free to substitute your own words!
