Beam Me Up… (or, er, over to the couch maybe?)
Last week, MIT hosted a panel featuring physicists Dr. Edward Farhi and Dr. Max Tegmark, motion picture producer Doug Liman, and actor Hayden Christensen. The topic of discussion? Teleportation as depicted in Liman’s new sci-fi flick, “Jumper.”
“I wasn’t expecting such a lively group,” Christensen told attendees at the event.
Lest you think, upon reading this, that you have, somehow, been teleported to an alternate universe, be assured that although MIT hosted the panel they did not allow any part of the film itself to be shot on campus.
