Quantum Entanglement is real Einstein's idea in trouble

Once again, there has arisen an intricate situation in the field of particle and universe physics which has created two subgroups and placed them in a position of conflict over the point that is the quantum entanglement real. As Einstein never believed the Quantum Theory to be significantly contributing to reveal the secrets of universe and its particles, there’s always been some contradiction between these two aspects on this idea.
Recently, a team of Dutch scientists conducted a study at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and found that they were able to prove that objects can simultaneously affect one another even if separated by great distances. This is contrary to Einstein’s insistence that this “SPOOKY” idea was wrong and that there may be some other reason for why particles behave the way they do.
This experiment is also supportive of John Bell’s inequality, which has, up to this point, been fraught with experiments that have certain flaws and invite several debates on its credibility. In the experiment, researchers placed diamonds with a lone electron in two different locations 1.3 kms (0.8 miles) apart and the results were quite diverged. They found out that the particles had a clear connection of which Einstein disapproved his whole life.
Over time, the researchers have found the validity of Bell’s inequality, that particles are entangled and always connected in a way that they can affect one another regardless of the separation between them. Other physicists applaud the results of the experiment, saying that it could bring the research on quantum theory to a new level. David Kaiser of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said that this was a beautiful and ingenious experiment and it would help to push the entire particle physics field forward. He was not involved in the study though, he added the results probably aren’t enough to eliminate all doubts over this subject. Leonard Susskind from Stanford was equally impressed with the results of the experiment and agreed that this showed how far the field of quantum mechanics has come.
Professor Ronald Hanson, who led the team of researchers said and believed that the loopholes can be the backdoors into systems. When one goes loophole-free then, an extra layer of security is obtained and one can be absolutely certain that there is no way for hackers to get in.
On the sum, the experiment has proved to be a turning point in the particle physics and universe mechanics field and of course, this has also led to a situation of conflict between two different and equally important ideologies.
