Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Belgrade have published a report in the journal Nature detailing their accomplishment in using a single photon or light particle to obtain quantum entanglement for separate atoms that are even far away in distances.

The scientists achieved this feat in the laboratory, but they are positive that with consistent research into the phenomenon, they would be able to achieve thousands of larger entanglements of farther atoms to create atomic clocks and even more accurate GPS devices in an effort that would also promo...
