Quantum entanglement and relativity of time

  1. Aug 27, 2013 #1
    if there are two entangled particles
    one of them is flying 80% the speed of light , one of them is on earth for instance
    if we measure the one on earth , would it the entanglement affect the other particle after sometime * due to time slowing down for speeding up particle * or does it happen instantaneously ?
    if the later is true wouldn't that mean that time is not relative ?
    or you can take it the other way , if the speeding one at 2 o'clock for instance
    would the entanglement appear instantaneously or would it take sometime to appear due to time is slower in the speeding up particle ? so if it takes a second to measure it on the speeding up particle it would take an hour for instance to happen on earth
