Experiment gives evidence for ‘non-locality’

Dutch physicist just did an experiment that delivers evidence for ‘non-locality’. This phenomenon stands against classical physics which postulated that every interaction of particles is an local interaction. Non-locality then is an interaction that can happen for example between to electrons that are pretty far away from each other. Quantum theory predicts such non local effects and Einstein callled them
spooky. And they are indeed. They pose a problem for our understanding of causality in general
