PostSubject: Idiots in science: Quantum Experiment In Space Confirms That Reality Is What You Make It    Fri Nov 03, 2017 6:07 pm

To test quantum theory, physicists used the Matera Laser Ranging Observatory in southern Italy, which usually tracks satellites to monitor tiny changes in Earth’s shape. QuantumFuture Research Group, University of Padova - DEI, Padova Italy - 2017



An odd space experiment has confirmed that, as quantum mechanics says, reality is what you choose it to be. Physicists have long known that a quantum of light, or photon, will behave like a particle or a wave depending on how they measure it. Now, by bouncing photons off satellites, a team has confirmed that an observer can make that decision anytime.

Even after a photon has made its way almost completely through the experiment—seemingly well past the point at which it would become either a wave or a particle. Such delayed-choice experiments might someday probe the fuzzy frontier between quantum theory and relativity, researchers say.

Other researchers have demonstrated the same counterintuitive effect in the laboratory. But the new work shows that a photon’s nature remains undefined even over thousands of kilometers, says Philippe Grangier, a physicist at the Institute of Optics in Palaiseau, France, who collaborated on an earlier test. “It's a very nice experiment that demonstrates their ability to do quantum physics in space.”
