Entanglement Area Law in Superfluid 4He

By using the VACC to simulate a container of superfluid helium atoms at absolute zero temperature, our team of scientists has discovered that the amount of quantum entangled information shared between two parts of the container grows with the area of the boundary between them. Just like a black hole, it seems that the information needed to describe a three-dimensional volume of space is entirel
