Quantum action at a distance is confirmed over a range of kilometers.

Quantum theory predicts that two widely separated particles can be "entangled" so a measurement on one instantaneously affects the measured properties of the other. Einstein called this troubling effect "spooky," but encouraged by earlier observations in various laboratories, a Swiss group, led by physicist Nicolas Gisin, confirm it over a distance of eleven kilometers.
