While Einstein wasn’t for it – calling it “spooky action at a distance” – quantum entanglement might be spooky but it’s very much a real thing.

Saskia is a year 12 student who enjoys teaching herself about complicated science phenomena, and for this episode of Podcast Next Gen she is investigating quantum complexities and complications.

That trip around the quantum world includes a high five at the beach, an Austrian telescope and mind melting physics.

Podcast Next Gen is a collaboration between Cosmos Magazine and the National Youth Science Forum.

The reporters are year 12 students from across Australia – the next generation of scientists, science journalists and podcasters. These ‘shortcast’ episodes have been written and recorded by the students, giving them the opportunity to work with real science journalists and editors to make their science concept come to life.
