Nathan Rosen

Nathan Rosen, a Member (1934–36) in the School of Mathematics, coauthored with Albert Einstein the paper "The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity," which introduced the concept of an Einstein-Rosen bridge, or wormwhole, in 1935. That same year, Rosen coauthored the paper "Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality be Considered Complete?" with Einstein and Boris Podolsky, commonly referred to as EPR. The EPR paper pointed out that quantum mechanics had a very funny property later called “quantum entanglement,” a kind of correlation between two distant physical systems currently involved in the work of Professor Juan Maldacena, among others.
