Few things in science get crazier than quantum mechanics, with related theories sometimes sounding more like paranormal activity than physics. So when such theories gain experimental proof it’s a big day for physicists.

Quantum entanglement is a curious phenomenon that occurs when two particles remain connected, even over large distances, in such a way that actions performed on one particle have an effect on the other. For instance, one particle might be spun in a clockwise direction. The result on the second particle would be an equal anti-clockwise spin.

Commentary by The Secular Jurist:  The ramifications of this development staggers the imagination, for it challenges the normal human perception of a three-dimensional universe.  The great distances which we see as insurmountable to interstellar space travel might simply be a barrier created by our own ignorance.  Although this research into quantum entanglement does not by itself prove the existence of a multi-dimensional cosmos, it certainly will foster hypotheses which attribute such a structure as the mechanism for quantum entanglement.
