Question

Will we soon be able to teleport?

Answer

At the moment there are some people doing incredibly subtle experiments which mean you can get all the information about a single particle - its position and its direction - and then translate that information to somewhere else. This research is still happening on single photons. I think doing the same for a whole person certainly isn't going to happen in our lifetime.
