BREAKING: Army scientists successfully 'teleport' SoldiersApril 1, 2016 By Bob Reinert, USAG Natick Public Affairs Pvt. Kelley McCoy begins to dematerialize as he is successfully "teleported" from Natick to the Grafenwoehr Training Area. Related LinksU.S. Army Natick Soldier Systems Center NATICK, Mass. (April 1, 2016) -- Army scientists have successfully "teleported" a fully equipped squad from a Massachusetts research and development facility to a training area in Germany, the Natick Soldier Systems Center (NSSC) announced today.The nine human research volunteers, fresh out of Advanced Individual Training, were participating in experiments in the Doriot Climatic Chambers at NSSC when they disappeared and moments later materialized at the Grafenwoehr Training Area, completely unharmed. The chambers are capable of replicating any climate or weather in the world but have never before been used in this manner.Teleportation, made famous in the "Star Trek" television series and movies, had been -- until what the Army is calling the "Natick incident" -- a hypothetical way of moving objects from place to place. American writer Charles Fort is reported to have coined the word in 1931.Officials at Natick were elated by the event, which promises to one day revolutionize the way that American troops and equipment are transported around the globe. It also could ultimately make overseas bases obsolete as forces are instead moved from U.S. soil to remote trouble spots in the blink of an eye."No one is more impressed by this than I am," said Benjamin Storm, who manages the 61-year-old climatic chambers at Natick. "One moment, I was chatting with the young Soldiers, and the next, they all vanished into thin air." == > More: http://www.army.mil/article/164802/BREAKING__Army_scientists_successfully__teleport__Soldiers (here's the unmissable clue - in the last section); According to Storm, a device not unlike the "flux capacitor" seen in the "Back to the Future" movie series was employed during the experiment. This led to immediate speculation that the Army was also working on time travel, but time travel requirements of generating 1.21 gigawatts is no trivial feat."We're only concerned with place, not time," said Storm, a twinkle in his eye. "This development could change the entire course of human history."The Task Force expects to report its initial findings by April 1, 2017. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
