How Would George Washington Feel About This?

Ol’ George was wary of foreign entanglements, but then he wasn’t a physicist living in the quantum age.

A Schrödinger cat with eight lives: quantum entanglement of eight photons

One of the most mind-blowing areas of quantum mechanics is entanglement: two or more particles separated in space can have physical properties that are correlated. A measurement performed on one particle will tell us the result of the same measurement taken on an entangled particle.

Yes! They avoided the common pitfalls of entanglement reporting. There’s even a link to the paper at the end. Good job.
