    This is an interesting paragraph:

    The team also tested the fundamentals of quantum mechanics. Einstein had argued that since quantum mechanics allows for entanglement, which he derided as “spooky action at a distance”, it must be an incomplete theory and that there must be an underlying reality to explain such weirdness. But the tests done on the entangled photons between the pairs of ground stations showed that quantum weirdness is real and cannot be explained by any Einsteinian notions of hidden reality.

    Yes Einstein hated entanglement and attempted to get rid of it several times but failed. So far everything that has been achieved has simply confirmed his predictions.

    I also think it's interesting that one of the big problems is not destroying one of your entangled particles. Photons for example are easily destroyed by striking 'stuff' and being converted to energy.
