What is the speed of action of quantum entanglement over distance? (Strange Universe series)
When subatomic particles interact, they gain something called quantum entanglement. You cannot fully describe one member of a quantum entangled group without describing all its members. This is true even when the entangled members of the group are spatially separated. If, for instance, you measure the spin of one electron and thus collapse its wave-state, you simultaneously collapse the wave-state of all its quantum entangled partners even without having measured them. The question is, if the individual members of the quantum entangled group are widely separated, how long does it take for the effect to pass from one to another. At what speed does quantum entanglement propagate?.
