Beam them up, Scottie!

Australian scientists have been making progress on Star Trek technology.
".... for a human to be teleported would mean pinpointing and analysing the trillions and trillions of atoms that make up the human body", says the report.

But, listen to this:

....it may not be long before solid matter is teleported from one place to another. "My prediction is.....it will probably be done by someone in the next three to five years, that is the teleportation of a single atom."

A single atom! We could thus zap politicians out of the solar system at the touch of a button. Isn't science wonderful?
