Cool video... makes me think of all the possibilities. Imagine in the future if we start communicating with extraterrestrial species and we find out there is some sort of galactic internet which exploits quantum entanglement properties to transfer information over massive distances in an instant. Oh wow imagine if they had something like bitcoin... a universal P2P digital currency.
sorry but i cant see how this thing will solve the lag between solar systems..this will not by any means shorten the distance..its benefiting more IMO the amount of data transferred and the quality of the data received and it will prevent also data loss
but distance i cant see it will still be a problem

thing is, with the limitation of light speed, even if we had perfect net it would still take an hour for do something, say at mars, and see the reaction.

This might sound a little bit out there, but I had to ask...
If the earth is spinning at roughly 1,000 mph at the equator, if you sent a signal at the speed of light counter rotationally, would it be SOL + 1,000 mph? If you made say, 1,000 rotations with said signal would it be SOL + 1,000 times 1,000?
I ask because if the signal could be harnessed at that speed, it might lower the lag time to a distant planet, at least in one direction. It makes sense in my head...unless I'm WAAAAY off, which NEVER happens, lol.
