Caption

Quantum entanglement, illustration. Sequence from top to bottom, showing entangled quantum particles or events (left and right) interacting at a distance. Quantum entanglement is one of the consequences of quantum theory. Two particles (here, photons in China and Vienna) will appear to be linked across space and time, with changes to one of the particles (such as an observation or measurement) affecting the other one. This instantaneous effect appears to be independent of both space and time, meaning that, in the quantum realm, effect may precede cause. This may have applications in quantum information theory and quantum teleportation. For this image with labels, see image C042/4436.
