I don't have a good grasp of "spin along axis" topic, so pardon my dumb questions:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Does a photon/electron have a different spin across each of the 3 axis?

i understand that the spin of an electron/photon is not the same as that of, say, a ball

2. Gravity can distort time-space (and hence the axis?).

Alice is in a gravity free part of space-time. Bob takes the other entangled photon and is in a space-time region that is distorted by gravity.

If Alice measures the spin of her entangled photon along say the "x-axis"

how does Bob figure out what his "x-axis" is? does Bob simply make adjustments for the new Cartesian system based on the formulas (for distortion of space time by gravity)?

3. If a photon is travelling along x-axis, does it have one spin each for each of the three axis? thus a total of 3 spins....if you are making calculations in the Cartesian system
