Spooky Action at a Distance: The Phenomenon That Reimagines Space and Time—and What It Means for Black Holes, the Big Bang, and Theories of Everything

By George Musser

A mind-bending voyage to the frontier of recent physics



What is area? It isn't a query that almost all folks quite often cease to invite. house is the venue of physics; it's the place issues exist, the place they movement and take form. but over the last few many years, physicists have stumbled on a phenomenon that operates open air the confines of house and time. The phenomenon—the skill of 1 particle to impact one other immediately around the vastness of space—appears to be nearly magical. Einstein grappled with this oddity and couldn't fairly get to the bottom of it, describing it as "spooky motion at a distance." yet this unusual incidence has direct connections to black holes, particle collisions, or even the workings of gravity. If area isn't what we proposal it was once, then what's it?
In Spooky motion at a Distance, George Musser units out to reply to that question, supplying a provocative exploration of nonlocality and a party of the scientists who're attempting to are aware of it. Musser courses us on an epic trip of clinical discovery into the lives of experimental physicists staring at debris appearing in tandem, astronomers studying galaxies that glance statistically exact, and cosmologists hoping to resolve the paradoxes surrounding the large bang. Their conclusions problem our realizing not just of house and time yet of the origins of the universe—and their insights are spurring profound technological innovation and suggesting a brand new grand unified concept of physics.
