Quasars to the Rescue! A Cosmic Test for Quantum Entanglement

Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Blue Wing, Level 1

Saturday, February 23, 12:30 pm

David Kaiser brought an international team to a mountaintop observatory in the Canary Islands to confirm once and for all the spookiest finding of quantum physics – entanglement. Is it really possible that particles light years apart could be so intimately connected that what happens to one also happens simultaneously to the other? Einstein doubted it. Kaiser, recently featured in the PBS NOVA program, Einstein’s Quantum Riddle, and author of “How the Hippies Saved Physics,” tells the story of his remarkable quest to end-run Einstein, then stays around to answer your questions.
