Quantum Entanglement Connects Particles Across Any Length Of Space

Quantum Entanglement Connects Particles Across Any Length Of Space

Scientists don't fully understand quantum entanglement—but they know that space, or physical distance, is not a factor in the "communication" between two entangled particles. If one is affected by a force or a measurement, the other also reacts in the same moment, even if they are separated by leagues. Unlocking the secrets of this phenomenon could lead to incredible advancements in technology, such as quantum machines that transmit information faster than light.
