Quasars to the Rescue! A Cosmic Test for Quantum Entanglement

Quantum entanglement — a mysterious and instantaneous link between particles — is one of the strangest phenomena in quantum physics. Harnessing it could launch a revolution in computing, sensing, communications, and cryptography. But first, we need to know it’s real.

Hear from David Kaiser, professor of physics and of the history of science at MIT, who designed a cosmic experiment to close the last remaining loophole. NOVA recently followed Kaiser’s team to their mountaintop observatory in the Canary Islands (Einstein’s Quantum Riddle). Here at the Museum, he will reveal what they discovered and answer your questions.
