For the first time ever, scientists have managed to capture Einstein's 'spooky' phenomenon on camera.
Taken by a team at the University of Glasgow's School of Physics and Astronomy, the image shows a strong form of quantum entanglement where two particles interact and share their physical states.
Albert Einstein described this action as 'spooky' because it occurs instantaneously no matter how far apart the two particles are - a fact which seemed to conflict with his Special Theory of Relativity.
The connection is known as Bell entanglement ( named after physicist John Bell. )
"The image we've managed to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time in the form of an image," said Paul-Antoine Moreau.
"It's an exciting result which could be used to advance the emerging field of quantum computing and lead to new types of imaging."
