Don't Talk To Aliens, Warns Stephen Hawking

DESADE Re:Security through obscurity? (1015 comments)

Don't worry fellas. I got this. I saved my Powerbook 5300c from years back. When they come, I'll be ready.

The LHC, the Higgs Boson, and Fate

DESADE Re:Could happen (691 comments)

Thanks for the response. This is just a crazy idea I came up with on my own. I was reading The Dancing Wi Lu Masters and got my first brain bending taste of entanglement. At the same time I saw a documentary describing how no information could every travel beyond the event horizon of a black hole. For years the idea has nagged at me and I've asked quite a few physicist why it would not work and have never got an answer that satisfied. But that's probably due more to my stupidity than anything. But even taking spin out of the scenario, can't other things happen to the entangled particle other than a change in spin that we might be able to observe?

DESADE Re:Could happen (691 comments)

I don't think so. Entanglement. One particle goes through the event horizon. We stay on this side and observe what happens to the other. Some say the energy of the black hole breaks the entanglement. But how will we know till we try it?

"Spooky" Science Points Towards Quantum Computing

DESADE Entanglement and black holes... (294 comments)

I've always wondered if we would one day be able to use entangled photons to peer beyond the event of a black hole. Keep one particle in an observable state and send one through the black hole. Something is bound to happen and it might give us some insight into what exists beyond the event horizon. This experiment sounds like a step toward that possibility.
