Albert Einstein is known throughout history as a significant contributor to science, most notably in the field of physics. He was one of the pioneers of quantum physics, and was the first to observe the behavior of light particles and the electrons. In this topic he had a lifelong debate with another brilliant scientist, Neils Bohr, and up to this day the subject of quantum physics is not entirely resolved. The chapter challenges the theories on quantum mechanics, for the chapter states that if this study carries on, it will continue to discover new insights. The chapter gives the basic elements, as well as the issues, of EPR and special relativity, with the temporal asymmetry objection.
