When you watch Star Trek, you can see Captain James Kirk and Mr. Spock in a transporter. It looks as if they are turned into energy and data when they are disappearing. When they appear, they are flesh and blood again. Will Star Trek’s transporter be real someday in the future? I would be afraid of it, but it would be nice to travel without cars, trucks, motorcycles, and airplanes. However, I would be afraid that I would be destroyed somehow in a transporter. In real life, it looks like something that would be very dangerous to do as far as technology. It is called teleportation and it is something that scientists are working on.
