Spooky Action at A Distance
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 Musser, George Book - 2015 | First edition.

The title comes from a phrase that Einstein himself used to describe physical phenomena that seem to break all the rules of the known universe. This is science that reads like Sci-Fi. "Entangled" particles act upon one another regardless of distance, physical matter escapes from a black hole, galaxies exert impossible influences apparently since before the Big Bang... The various manifestations of "nonlocality" in theoretical physics have spawned decades of debate among some of the world's greatest scientific minds, and may lead to the conclusion (a chapter title in Musser's book, in fact) that "Spacetime is doomed." If you enjoy a mind-blowing experience in radical but real science, in which every few pages sends your head spinning at the possibilities, you have found it! (Or maybe it has always been close to you in a parallel universe...)
