The Nobel Prize in physics
sounds pretty daunting, and definitely not something the layman should be able to understand. Well thanks to Hank Green in this TikTok, we have it all broken down into bits we can understand. And it might make even less sense that way.
From what I can make of it, there are particles that are linked, and no matter what you do to one, the other will respond instantly even if it's on the other side of the universe. You might know that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, but when it comes to these particles, whatever information that links them is not bound by this principle. Oh, and just to make things more fun, none of this happens at all unless we're observing them. It's as if they know they're being watched and want to put on a show for us, except they're subatomic particles. This reminds me why I quit being a physics major.
