A photon was teleported 500km from Earth to space. 

Einstein derisively called quantum entanglement “spooky action at a distance.” Since his time, the phenomenon has been pretty well documented.

Serial inventor has her eyes set on telepathy. 

She’s credible: “Jepsen is a former engineering executive at Facebook, Oculus, Google[x] (now called X) and Intel. She’s also been a professor at MIT and is an inventor on over 100 patents. And that’s the abbreviated version of her resume.” Now she’s creating a wearable (i.e. hat) that can do the work of an MRI machine. Next, she’ll try to use that technology for instant thought sharing.  learn more
