# Can we teleport a human or send information faster than light using quantum teleportation?

What does quantum teleportation mean? Is it something that will allow us to send information faster than the light? Can we teleport a human with it?

Teleporting a human is a very subjective question today. Because it is not a quantum object to be described by a quantum state. A human is a macroscopic object which is completely classical. To this date, the biggest size of objects that are teleported (to about $$2\ \mathrm{km}$$ range) is the size of buckyballs or similar objects (this means teleporting their quantum states - in the sense of information). Teleporting anything classical would be quite metaphysical at this point, it would also bring the questions of consciousness and other hypotheses into the framework which are not yet modeled or accepted by the science community. One way may be to scramble - teleport - re-assemble such objects, but do they retain their macroscopic properties then? It is a question which is more philosophical to this point.
