The God Effect: Quantum Entanglement, Science's Strangest Phenomenon

Brian Clegg

The phenomenon that Einstein notion too spooky and unusual to be true

What is entanglement? it is a connection among quantum debris, the construction blocks of the universe. as soon as debris are entangled, a transformation to 1 of them is reflected---instantly---in the opposite, be they within the comparable lab or light-years aside. So counterintuitive is that this phenomenon and its implications that Einstein himself referred to as it "spooky" and notion that it should result in the downfall of quantum concept. but scientists have when you consider that stumbled on that quantum entanglement, the "God Effect," used to be one among Einstein's few---and possibly considered one of his greatest---mistakes.

What does it mean? the chances provided via a fuller knowing of the character of entanglement learn like whatever out of technological know-how fiction: communications units that can span the celebs, codes that can not be damaged, pcs that dwarf trendy machines in pace and tool, teleportation, and extra.

In The God Effect, veteran technology author Brian Clegg has written a really readable and engaging (and equation-free) account of entanglement, its heritage, and its program. fanatics of Brian Greene and Amir Aczel and people drawn to the excellent probabilities coming down the quantum physics street will locate a lot to surprise, remove darkness from, and delight.
