The argument is often made that quantum teleportation is completely unrelated to Star-Trek style teleportation, but isn't the main issue just a matter of scaling? Is there something that fundamentally prevents us from scaling the process up to a macroscopic object, like the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle? I understand that, for example, there are interactions constantly going on between the atoms of a macroscopic object, but don't those interactions stop at absolute zero? Isn't there some way to get around this? Couldn't we, in theory, find a way to send not just the quantum states of the constituent atoms but also their correlations with each other? Isn't there some way quantum decoherence for a macroscopic object can be prevented? I also understand that, in order to perform QT on a macroscopic object, one would need a group of "receiver atoms" at the destination onto which the quantum state of the initial atoms could be projected. Again, isn't this merely a matter of developing the technology required to put that mass together?
