I would suspect its feasible. It requires that the participants prearrange what the measurements will mean 'above and beyond' what the measurements actually are. A request to send [or not send] a spaceship occurs before the participants separate. We can argue about what constitutes the definition of information in this context.

If it is feasible, then two or three generations later (after Bob and Alice), Nokia would be making cell phones based on this technology. Afterall, if you extend this concept, its conceivable to make a radio that has a transceiver using the following kind of code:

A= measure for 2 seconds, not measure 2 seconds, measure for 2 seconds

B= measure for 3 seconds, not measure 2 seconds, measure for 3 seconds

.
.
.

Z= measure for 2 seconds, not measure for 5 seconds, measure for 4 seconds


Using the above kind of code, its conceivable to improve measuring devices to doing so over microseconds (or nanoseconds?), and thereby make a transceiver/receiver having instantanteous communication (with video) from M31.

You don't think this contradicts special relativity that you can't send a signal faster than the speed of light?
