In fact, the positron (anti-particle of electron) is identical to the electron moving backward in time.
This exact interpretations sounds fishy to me.

Quantum entanglement is the crown jewel of physics and even Einstein wouldn't believe this concept until John Bell's paper and the experiments of Alain Aspect proved "spooky action at a distance" was in fact a real phenomenon and Einstein was wrong!
Thanks for sharing! (y)
Well. If quantum computing and communications become established - Physics would lose its niche cuz Quantum Engineering college degrees would be invented.

Say what you want, quantum "weirdness" is about as factual as scientific facts get. How to explain it is anyone's guess, but you can't escape the weirdness of it, unless you retreat into Einsteinian denial.
? The pic wasn't an argument against entanglement though.

It is Crazy what they have achieved, I almost can't believe it is possible, on some levels we have a bright future ahead of us!😮
Hopefully costs of starting an ISP here would be cheaper because of this so I can actually have internet now instead of 1 GB/day of Facebook for 3 days because we have no net neutrality and mostly because ISPs are assholes.

None of the quantum stuff makes sense without the weird math they use.
I prefer the elegant electromagnetism math which have a total of five equations to describe all of electromagnetism.

That "weird math" has been experimentally confirmed to 14 decimal places....It's a very accurate theory..entanglement,quantum tunneling etc are all real phenomena confirmed experimentally
The math is easier to understand than the complex General Relaitivity mathematics


I do agree that Maxwell's equations are truly elegant but so is this

Quantum electrodynamics is when you think you have a handsome baby but then it went and grew up.

You can't change my mind about this. Everything above undergraduate physics is ugly that's why they don't get hired.

Everything above undergraduate physics is where the groundbreaking work happens and it will inevitably be dirty!

I'm not here to change your mind...I'm here engaged in a gentlemanly discussion;)
