|The quantum phenomenon known as entanglement keeps spreading its arms to hold ever more particles in its spooky embrace. Quantum entanglement is an effect through which multiple particles share correlated properties--across arbitrarily large distances--that snap into place instantaneously... If that strikes you as more than a little counterintuitive, you're in good company. Albert Einstein once disparaged quantum entanglement as "spooky action at a distance." As he and his colleagues wrote in 1935, "No reasonable definition of reality could be expected to permit this." Reasonable or no, entanglement indeed appears to be a part of reality, as numerous experiments have demonstrated.|
