Bell’s Theorem for Space-Like Separation

  • Gregor Weihs


Soon after John Bell published his famous theorem first experiments [1–3] were performed to test whether nature was compliant with local realistic theories or not. Now, more than 30 years later various groups are still trying to do better and better tests of the same sort, and indeed techniques have come remarkably close to ideal. So, why bother?
