Maintaining coherence in a quantum system is easier when
they are simple and well isolated from the environment, which
typically means starting small in both number of particles and the
physical size of the system. Linking together these systems is one
path toward "scaling up" quantum computing, and distributing the
modules is necessary for a quantum network. Furthermore, distributing
quantum systems gives access to spatial variation which may be of
great interest to measure with a sensor network. We will discuss why
remote entanglement is a necessary ingredient for such systems,
various approaches to generating remote entanglement, and how these
experiments reveal the "spooky" fundamental physics of our world.
