Closing the 'free will' loophole: Using distant quasars to test Bell's theorem
http://www.sciencedaily.com...

a paper published this week in the journal Physical Review Letters, MIT researchers propose an experiment that may close the last major loophole of Bell's inequality -- a 50-year-old theorem that, if violated by experiments, would mean that our universe is based not on the textbook laws of classical physics, but on the less-tangible probabilities of quantum mechanics.

Seems a rather meaningless test, but for science go ahead. There are not many holding on to locality anyway.

I do recall posting another proposed experiment that was devised that would also close other hidden variables possibly lurking in extra dimensions. It was not technologically feasible at the time, but speculated in a few years that it would be able.

Close free will and more possible hidden variable in up to 11 dimensions and non-locality is on very strong footing.

How exactly can two particles separated at birth in a suppositional state know instantly what to be when one of them is observed? Quite a mystery.

On another note the furthest distance between two entangled particles before they were observed was 89 miles. The information from one of the particles when observed was instantaneously known (given? not certain what verb should go there) by the other particle and information from a to b if it indeed traveled was shown to be faster than speed of light.
