Researchers have been able to link a record number of 3,000 atoms together in quantum entanglement, a mysterious condition where the behavior of these particles would remain connected even when separated by massive distances.

Called “spooky action at a distance” by Albert Einstein, quantum entanglement seems completely impossible under standard physics models, but on a quantum level the universe sometimes unravels to the point where atoms react in ways that seem impossible or even magical. On a quantum level, atoms can e...
