Theoretical physicists have forged a connection between the concept of entanglement—itself
a mysterious quantum mechanical connection between two widely separated
particles—and that of a wormhole—a hypothetical connection between
black holes that serves as a shortcut through space. The insight could
help physicists reconcile quantum mechanics and Einstein’s general
theory of relativity, perhaps the grandest goal in theoretical physics.
But some experts argue that the connection is merely a mathematical
Entanglement links quantum particles so that fiddling with one can
instantly affect another. According to the bizarre quantum laws that
govern the subatomic realm, a tiny particle can be in two opposite
conditions or states at once.
