Manipulating Time and Light, Then and Now

In 1996, the first photon was transported across an Arizona laboratory during the 30th anniversary year of Star Trek® and its transporters. In 2012, photons were transported 88 miles between two of the Canary Islands during May of the 46th anniversary year of Trek.

It took 16 years for this to occur after the first photon transport. While we may never be able to transport living beings, what we have accomplished in this realm shows our ability at least to manipulate light and perhaps time. So does DST.
