An Interview With Albert Einstein

This is a rather "interesting" way of doing it. Science News Editor-in-Chief Tom Siegfried "conducted an interview" with Albert Einstein on his objection to quantum mechanics. Einstein's responses were based on his writings on the subject.

I suppose that for many of us who are familiar with this history, there's nothing surprising here. However, if we were to conduct this interview today, one certainly cannot ignore the dramatic advancement we have made with the Bell-type family of experiments, something that Einstein didn't live to see. So presumably, he didn't have much to say about this phenomenon and so, this "interview" could not speculate on what his response would be if we were to present to him such a question. To be, that would be the question that I would pose, and I would be highly curious on his response to it.
