Written by Aaron Rowe – CNN By zapping diamonds with an enormous number of laser beam pulses, physics researchers have created several cases of what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.” A team of scientists showed that two diamonds can entangle with one another, meaning that vibrations in one of the crystals share an invisible, long-range connection with vibrations … Read More
