Albert Einstein‘s work in part led to the prediction of quantum entanglement: the idea that two particles can remain connected across vast distances of space and time.
Einstein found the idea absurd and “spooky,” but it has since been proven with countless quantum physics experiments.
No had ever photographed entangled photons (pieces of light), though, until one research team recently did so with a high-tech laser experiment.

The black-and-white photo above isn’t much to look at. However, the ghostly, eye-like shapes illustrate a strange phenomenon that rattled Albert Einstein so much that he died disbelieving it could exist.
The picture represents the first-ever photograph of quantum entanglement, or the “spooky” pairing of particles.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
