This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics. Even though Albert Einstein (together with collaborators in the EPR Paradox paper) wanted to show that quantum mechanics must be incomplete because it was nonlocal (he didn't like "spooky action at a distance"), John Bell managed to prove that any local real hidden variable theory would have to satisfy certain simple statistical properties that quantum mechanical experiments (and the theory that describes them) violate. Since then, Daniel M. Greenberger, Michael A. Horne, Anton Zeilinger and others have managed to extend the theoretical work, and Alain Aspect performed the first Bell test experiment in the late 1980s.

Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
The Big Bounce theory was once thought impossible. But two physicists have just resurrected it.
Another universe existed before ours – and energy from it is coming out of black holes, says Nobel prize winner
If you were to go as far out into space as you can imagine, what would you encounter?
In a new paper, physicists argue that axions could explain why the universe isn’t empty
Neuroscience and psychology have been unable to address the hard problem of consciousness
No matter where we start with quantum theory, we always end up at a conundrum
Jim Woodward’s peers have long dismissed his ideas about gravity and inertia. Now he believes he has the data that will prove him right—and could make interstellar travel possible for humans.
