Surprise Link Between Weird Quantum Phenomena: Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Sets Limits on Einstein’s ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’
ScienceDaily (Nov. 18, 2010) — Researchers have uncovered a fundamental link between the two defining properties of quantum physics. The result is being heralded as a dramatic breakthrough in our basic understanding of quantum mechanics and provides new clues to researchers seeking to understand the foundations of quantum theory. The result addresses the question of why quantum behaviour is as weird as it is — but no weirder.

    Entanglement loophole closed

    A long-distance experiment rejects a challenge to quantum physics.

    An old USSR joke:
    Question: Is it true that the USSR-made car “Volga” makes a 90-degree turn at 100 km/hr?
    Answer: Yes…. but only once.

    – Is entanglement a “yes, but only once” affair for each entangled objects pair/group?
    and, if so indeed,
    – Are the states-of-systems of entangled objects decided upon separation of the objects, not upon their measurment?
