Wormholes might Be Linked with Spooky Phenomenon of Quantum Entanglement
Scientists have been trying for a long period of time to develop a theory that can describe how cosmos work in its entirety. Researchers have now said that wormholes could be linked to the spooky phenomenon of quantum entanglement so as to have the behavior of particles connected regardless of distance. Wormholes are basically shortcuts that can connect distant points in the universe.
Scientists are optimistic that findings could help scientists paint a clear picture about universe from its very smallest to biggest scales.
Researchers have two theories as of now: quantum mechanics and general relativity. These are two disparate theories can explain the universe on its tiniest scales and its largest scales. General relativity is a brain child of Albert Einstein and it includes wormholes. These are formally known as Einstein-Rosen bridges.
Also, quantum mechanics is a phenomenon that can link objects such as electrons regardless of how far apart they are.
"This is true even when the electrons are light years apart. Entanglement is one of the most bizarre but important features of quantum mechanics", said Kristan Jensen, a theoretical physicist at Stony Brook University in New York.
When connection is established between entanglement and wormholes, quantum mechanics can be reconciled with general relativity on tiny and huge scales, he added.
