Alien Fleet Survey

Recommended Posts

Really liked the Alien Fleet Survey text--more realistic than usual.  One correction: the speed of entanglement change (the measurement of the entangled property of one subatomic particle determining the property of another entangled particle some distance away) is instantaneous.  They've done measurements of particles up to several miles apart, and there is no measurable lag--and that's definitely 'way faster than light.  It really is "spooky action at a distance," as Einstein said dismissively. 

It sounds like you could still use this phenomenon to at least communicate instantly, but you can't.  Measuring a property of your particle "disentangles" your particle from the distant one.  It's a One And Done.
