Merton was inspired to writine a paper about the history and possible explanations for the common “simultaneous discovery” phenomenon (two or more scientists making an identical breakthrough or discovery at roughly the same time independently of one another) in 1963. He noted that in almost every case he found, the more famous scientist inevitably ended up being credited with the discovery, regardless of who was really first and the actual magnitude of the contribution ....
Loophole in Spooky Quantum Entanglement Theory Closed
*Entangled particles stay connected even when separated by large distances* is confirmed as one of the wildest predictions of quantum mechanics: that a pair of "entangled" particles, once measured, can somehow INSTANTLY COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER SO THAT THEIR STATES ALWAYS MATCH. [Note: We are so excited about this. Imagine, we are in constant contact with people who have passed or ever yet born or ???]
