Quantum Entanglement Could Stretch Across Time

Wired reports -

In the weird world of quantum physics, two linked particles can share a single fate, even when they’re miles apart.

Now, two Australian physicists have mathematically described how this spooky effect, called entanglement, could also bind particles across time.

. . .Physicists have figured out how to use entanglement to encrypt messages in uncrackable codes and build ultrafast computers. Entanglement can also help transmit encyclopedias’ worth of information from one place to another using only a few atoms, a protocol called quantum teleportation.

In a new paper posted on the physics preprint website arXiv.org, S. Jay Olson and Queensland colleague Timothy Ralph perform the math to show how these same tricks can send quantum messages not only from place to place, but from the past to the future.

. . .'You get to skip the intervening time.'

That could be nice.
