First Actual Photo of Quantum Entanglement Revealed

Several months ago, we had the very first photo of an actual black hole captured by the Event Horizon Telescope. For the scientific community, it was a big thing because then the glimpse into what black holes look like could eventually lead to being able to study them in more depth. Today, scientists have unveiled another first: a photo of quantum entanglement.

It might not look like much, but just stop and think about it for a second: this fuzzy grey image is the first time we've seen the particle interaction that underpins the strange science of quantum mechanics and forms the basis of quantum computing.
Quantum entanglement occurs when two particles become inextricably linked, and whatever happens to one immediately affects the other, regardless of how far apart they are. Hence the 'spooky action at a distance' description.
