The first living thing to go through the device was a small white rat. I still have him, in fact. As you can see, the damage was not so great as they say.

Matter Transmission is a Build technology in Alpha Centauri.

Background[ | ]

Matter Editation (B16) and the Secrets of Alpha Centauri (D12) point the way to one of the most celebrated concepts in science fiction—Matter Transmission. Transmitters based on this ology disassemble objects into the smallest component sub-particles, then transmits those particles and their underlying structural blueprint to a receiver. The receiver reassembles these objects according to the blueprint, recreating the original in every nuance and detail.
