    Only theoretical particles (which dont exist).

    Our most powerful particle accelerator cannot even get a single proton up to the speed of light, and they never will. It would take INFINITE energy to move even a proton to lightspeed. It is a governing LOW in our universe. That will never change.

    LOL real particles that do exist, look this is happening though it is not fully understood

    Chinese satellite beats distance record for quantum entanglement

    Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the state of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance.

    Measurements of physical properties such as position, momentum, spin, and polarization, performed on entangled particles are found to be perfectly correlated. For example, if a pair of particles is generated in such a way that their total spin is known to be zero, and one particle is found to have clockwise spin on a certain axis, the spin of the other particle, measured on the same axis, will be found to be counterclockwise, as is to be expected due to their entanglement. However, this behavior gives rise to seemingly paradoxical effects: any measurement of a property of a particle performs an irreversible collapse on that particle and will change the original quantum state. In the case of entangled particles, such a measurement will be on the entangled system as a whole.

    Such phenomena were the subject of a 1935 paper by Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen,[1] and several papers by Erwin Schrödinger shortly thereafter,[2][3] describing what came to be known as the EPR paradox. Einstein and others considered such behavior to be impossible, as it violated the local realism view of causality (Einstein referring to it as "spooky action at a distance")[4] and argued that the accepted formulation of quantum mechanics must therefore be incomplete.

    Later, however, the counterintuitive predictions of quantum mechanics were verified experimentally[citation needed] in tests where the polarization or spin of entangled particles were measured at separate locations, statistically violating Bell's inequality. In earlier tests it couldn't be absolutely ruled out that the test result at one point could have been subtly transmitted to the remote point, affecting the outcome at the second location.[5] However so-called "loophole-free" Bell tests have been performed in which the locations were separated such that communications at the speed of light would have taken longer—in one case 10,000 times longer—than the interval between the measurements.[6][7]

    According to some interpretations of quantum mechanics, the effect of one measurement occurs instantly. Other interpretations which don't recognize wavefunction collapse dispute that there is any "effect" at all. However, all interpretations agree that entanglement produces correlation between the measurements and that the mutual information between the entangled particles can be exploited, but that any transmission of information at faster-than-light speeds is impossible.[8][9]

    Quantum entanglement has been demonstrated experimentally with photons,[10][11][12][13] neutrinos,[14] electrons,[15][16] molecules as large as buckyballs,[17][18] and even small diamonds.[19][20] On 13 July 2019, scientists from the University of Glasgow reported taking the first ever photo of a strong form of quantum entanglement known as Bell entanglement.[21][22] The utilization of entanglement in communication and computation is a very active area of research.

    I love this guy's videos. Hes actually from my area. And he gives permission to be a little crazy.

    The concepts of stellar evolution of a nova came from technical articles I read when astronomers first correlated a neutrino burst with with the optical output of a particular star. The neutrinos arrived slightly before the visible light. An attempt was to see if neutrinos actually have mass and thus travel at light speed, but the SD of the estimate of the slowing of light through the outer stellar layer was not accurate enough to come to a conclusion.

    Entangled particles never never travel faster than the speed of light. Yes, entanglement applies to matter. Experiments have been done to show that entanglement also occurs with electrons and atoms.

    Entanglement is a link between quantum states. It has nothing to do with particle speed. If two particles have linked quantum states, and one is moved a large distance away, you can determine the quantum state of the distant particle immediately by checking the state of the local particle. This cannot be used for faster than light communication because you don't know the quantum state of either particle until you measure one of them.

    Physics does not "fall on it's face" because of entanglement. The equations correctly describe the phenomenon, but as usual in quantum mechanic, it evades intuition.

    Your copy and paste of post #32 explains all that.

    If you are on the beach and 10 miles out to sea you see a box freighter, do you know what is in every or any container? No, but you understand what is trillions of miles away..... nope

    The fact is and its distressing is that no one knows what the universe or what anything in it including us is.

    Entanglement is not fully understood, you should act like an adult and accept that. A sure fire sign of a fool is that they know everything about everything.

    So grow up fool, the Chinese have satellites entangled it's happening whether you want to sit it out or not

    Spoken like a perfect non-scientist with absolutely no understanding of physics.

    Another genius who forgot that einstein swore up and down that the universe could not be expanding

    Tell us more

    Tell us where Einstein said that.

    Then tell us what science degrees you have in physics.
