The Real Reasons Quantum Entanglement Doesn't Allow Faster-Than-Light Communication

My colleague-in-blogging Ethan Siegel does a regular reader-request feature, and this week’s edition drifts into my territory, answering a question about using quantum entanglement for faster-than-light communication. As I jokingly said on Twitter, Ethan’s answer is pretty good for an astronomer, …
