How spooky is quantum physics? Pretty freaking unknowably spooky, according to researchers and more stories from the quantum realm. 

Spotlight Story: 

“Albert Einstein famously said that quantum mechanics should allow two objects to affect each other’s behaviour instantly across vast distances, something he dubbed “spooky action at a distance.” Decades after his death, experiments confirmed this, but to this day, it remains unclear exactly how much coordination nature allows between distant objects. Now, five researchers say they have solved a theoretical problem that shows that the answer is, in principle, unknowable.” Nature
