NASA 'Holoported' a Doctor onto the International Space Station

"I have a new noun for your vocabulary: Holoportation.

It’s an amalgam of “hologram” and “teleportation,” and though it may seem like it, it isn’t just a niche sci-fi term buried somewhere in Isaac Asimov novels and Star Trek episodes.

In October, NASA used this mind-boggling, futuristic mechanism to bring NASA flight surgeon Dr. Josef Schmid onto the International Space Station while he was safely planted on our planet. No rockets necessary. "

In sci-fi movies things like this and more are a normal part of extraterrestrial living. It boggles the mind a bit to realize how MUCH more, of necessity, of natural evolution and innovation, will really be available to us as we continue to evolve at a rapid pace. This, I suppose is just touching the surface, but it felt quite cool to me, and I enjoyed reading this article! Thank you for posting! :heart:
