Bingo. They've basically just proven that we're not able to instantaneously teleport a human via current technology...which isn't especially insightful.
That still fails to answer the moral questions if the processing of transporting is cloning or not? If the process is a hybrid process of cloning your congitive abilities and memories into an exact replica of oneself - who would want to engage in that process and what are the implcations?
