Ok, fine Science Part 2

Ok, seriously... we are way beyond the flying cars at this point. Somehow we have jumped over basic practical applications of known technology and into the realm of magic.

NASA Ghost Imaging allows a camera to take pictures of things it can't actually see.

Somehow it "entangles" two photons, one that has actually bounced off the object, and one that is contacting the camera. This causes the photon that hits the camera to behave exactly as it it had been reflected from the object itself. And Ta Da!! An image is created.

A point scored for science!!!

Now, if an ESP believer person claims to be attuned with quantum entangled photons I will just have to say "Hey, why not! Good on ya!".

It turns out I don't know anything.
