QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT INITIALLY CONFIRMED BY STAR LIGHT

Quantum physicists of the Austrian Academy of Sciences around Anton Zeilinger were able to provide a decisive proof of quantum entaglement by use of 600-year-old cosmic light particles. In the journal "Physical Review Letters" the researchers are now reporting on their new experiment, which they carried out with telescopes at three locations in Vienna.
