NASA reports new studies looks at the “Love” between Particles


Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Here’s a love story at the smallest scales imaginable: particles of light. It is possible to have particles that are so intimately linked that a change to one affects the other, even when they are separated at a distance.

This idea, called “entanglement,” is part of the branch of physics called quantum mechanics, a description of the way the world works at the level of atoms and particles that are even smaller. Quantum mechanics says that at these very tiny scales, some properties of particles are based entirely on probability. In other words, nothing is certain until it happens.

This cartoon helps explain the idea of "entangled particles." Alice and Bob represent photon detectors, which NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)

A whisper of smoke


The enduring legend of the Bell Witch.

bellwitchposter1.gifEveryone loves a good old-fashioned ghost story—especially one that involves real people and real places. Forty-five miles northwest of Nashville is the quiet town of Adams, Tennessee. At first glance, Adams appears to be a remarkably ordinary rural community. But the town welcome sign on old Highway 41—adorned with a broom-riding witch—tells you otherwise. Many municipalities would deny that anything out-of-the-ordinary occurs within its boundaries, but in Adams, unexplained paranormal disturbances are just part of the community’s history. Since the early 19th century this small farming town has been home to the legend of the Bell Witch.

For the next several years, Bell and his family were terrorized by paranormal disturbances of an unknown origin. Eyewitness accounts, reams of historical documents and numerous personal testimonies would indicate that something remarkable happened to the simple, God-fearing, Bell family. But the question remains, “What?” «Read the rest of this article»
