What would happen if we had a working teleport? Well, it depends how it would work. Perhaps it would transform space travel, personal transport, economy... Niven humorously postulates a few different scenarios and examines the outcomes.

This essay was first a speech, then published in Galaxy, March 1969 and reprinted in the collection All The Myriad Ways.
