How fast do quantum interactions happen? Faster than light, 10,000 times faster.

That's what a team of physicists led by Juan Yin at the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai found in an experiment involving entangled photons, or photons that remain intimately connected, even when separated by vast distances.They wanted to see what would happen if you tried assigning a speed to what Einstein called "spooky action at a distance."

Pretty cool! It sounds as though they basically were measuring how fast we mean by the term "instantaneous" -- a phenomenon which, if you think about it, seems actually pretty damn-near impossible.
