    Thanks to YouTube Space London, who offered me time on their science lab set -- and thanks to Matt Gray ( - @unnamedculprit) who directed the shots!

    Oh, and if you want to see teleportation in fiction done well, have a look at Steven Gould's Jumper series -- the later books really start playing around with physics in fun ways, like building a... well, I'll leave that for you to read. (Amazon UK affiliate cash-in link: )

    If your evil, teleport into every world leader’s current location, and then shoot them. With a gun. Duh.

    I don't know about teleporting, but you can clearly read my mind - I was thinking about the same usage of teleportation while ago.

    Well, if gravity travels through the portals as well then i think the metal object would just kind of hover between them.

    I gotta say I like it when a science personality runs through an idea that breaks physics instead of just saying it breaks physics and stopping there. Leads to a better understanding of the meaning of the laws in place, and exactly what they contribute to our experience.

    Teleporting is instant, so movement of the planet and physics does not come in to this.

    WARNING: Each teleportation results in your immediate death and creation of a copy at destination. A copy has copy of your memories, but there is no continuity of consciousness from the, now deceased, original. User discretion is advised.

    But what if the teleportation is like I just magically appear where I want to be?

    There's also the fact that teleportation is inherently time travel, because time is just a measure of distance.

    You can't just throw the subject of teleportation without addressing the fact of energy that is required for you to teleport to begin with. The entire energy of the world isn't even enough to deconstruct and reconstruct you. If your body is on par with sub atomic level then you could teleport but still you would not have the energy to do it. The whole galaxy of energy is required for you to move a distance of a city block. You need to think this through more : D
