It means that they probably won't overnight a tobacco order there.

Of course you could! Fold space/time and bammo, you're there!

There's the fact that two separated particles can interact instantaneously, a phenomenon called quantum entanglement. ... And there's another phenomenon called quantum superposition. This principle of quantum mechanics suggests that particles can exist in two separate locations at once. So folding the fabric of space/time isn't so much the effort it may seem.

Our solar system just keeps on giving. Fascinating how new tech enables new insights. What will we find in the next 20 years?

You might like this, Wiz. This BBC series charts the 13 mins leading up to touch down on the first moon landing. I loved Mike Collins's comment at a time when there was intense competition with the Russians to reach the moon; he spoke of the unifying effect that the moon landing had and used the term 'we' in the context of the human race, not just NASA.

Well worth a listen and I'm looking forward to the next episode.

How would one access that?

Swinging by in 2 hours but will be too faint to see with the naked eye.

Okay, sure, global internet connection would be great. But I can't see the stars!
