In yesterday's blog, I answered The Odd Essay's comment with this:
"There are so many things in the universe that are incomprehensible to me. Some things even seem impossible, like entangled pairs. Hey, that might me another blog subject."
So, I guess today I will blog about Entangled Particles.
This will not be a long blog because scientists don't know a whole heck of a lot about them. They do know that entangled particles exist. OK, you are probably asking what are entangled particles? They are a pair of subatomic particles (photons, electrons, etc.) that seem to be somehow connected despite distance or time. In fact, one could be here on Earth and the other way out at the far reaches of the universe and when the one here changes the one way out there changes, too. How could that be? It seems that the speed limit of light has been exceeded. No one seems to understand. Even Albert Einstein called it the "spooky actions at a distance".
If they measure one, it affects the other:
Even to this day, scientist can not explain how but they are working on ways to use this phenomenon. Just think what that would do for communication, especially with astronauts that may, in the future, visit other planets. They could also instantaneously control probes anywhere in the universe and receive data back at once. And you thought your DSL line was fast?? Now, slow down and have a great day today, you hear?
