Bizarre atom link - "entanglement" - has huge potential for technology
For example, when an atom in Beijing is measured by an observer, it will show the exact opposite qualities of its entangled counterpart in Boston.
In the 1930s, the idea of entanglement seemed so absurd that Einstein derided it as “spooky action at a distance” and argued that it revealed serious shortcomings in quantum theory.
Today, however, entanglement stands as the essential feature of quantum mechanics, and scientists say its exploitation could lead to extraordinary leaps in computing, communications and cryptology. A quantum computer, they say, would take seconds to solve problems that today’s PCs would take billions of years to parse.
