One Bizarre Quantum Entanglement Experiment Changes the Way You “Look at” Things

And the weirdnedd continues check this out:

To bamboozle you further, this should all be going on right now in the subatomic particles which make up your body.

If all this seems utterly incomprehensible and sounds downright nuts, you’re in good company. Einstein called it “spooky” and Niels Bohr, a pioneer of quantum theory once said: “if quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.”

In this latest experiment, carried out by scientists at the Australian National University, lead researcher Andrew Truscott said in a press release that they have proven that “reality does not exist if you are not looking at it.”

However, a recent experiment – reported in Digital Journal– has now captured an image of a photon as both a wave and a particle for the first time.

As News puts it, the problems that still puzzles scientists is, “What makes a photon decide when to be one or the other?”


The picture above is from the university and supposidely the first ever of light behaving as a particle and a wave

This is pure science debate awesomeness at it’s best.  Feel free to leave any comments on this fascinating phenomenon.

thanks to digital journal for the fascinating info

    If memory serves the idea that information was traveling faster than light was heavily contested. The idea being that when you observe one, you instantly know the other, is not the same as when you observe one you have actually effected the other. You didn’t make one spin one way and suddenly the other is spinning the other way. You simply observed which was doing which and when. You hvent changed an outcome. It’s like having two balls in a bag one blue and one red. You pull oht one ball and it’s red. You then know the other is blue, but you haven’t turned it blue you simply knew something before having to actually observe it.
