    That Fox News story is somewhat misleading. In particular, this part:
    is just plain wrong. There is no faster-than-light information transfer going on.

    The spooky distance-independence of entanglement is very strange, but it does not imply any sort of causal connection. All that I can say is that if I have measured one member of the entangled pair, I know what the result of a measurement on the other member of the pair would be. Maybe that other measurement was made long before I made my measurement, maybe it will never happen... All I know is that if the other observer and I get together after the fact and compare notes we will see a relationship between his results and mine.
