The term teleportation was first coined in 1931 by American writer Charles Fort and, decades later, researchers are really getting the hang of it! Why is this amazing? Because that's one step closer to transporting fully solid matter which could mean that, somewhere down the road, you won't need that bus pass!
Teleportation is generally understood as an immediate transfer of matter from one point in our universe to another. This method to travel through space is a speculative theory, only plausible in case of the existence of natural wormholes, i.e. flaws in the regular weave of space-time, connecting points in space that are remote from each other.
