See here for the voting procedure, and background.

A. Einstein, B. Podolsky and N. Rosen, Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete? Phys Rev 47, 777 (1935). Another strong modern entry that might stand on the highest bit of the podium at the end of the day if the crowd gets entangled with excitement about it. This is the begining of the "maturing" of quantum mechanics, and forms the conceptual foundations of how we have (and will) come to increasingly appreciate and develop "macroscopic" applications of quantum mechanics in science and technology. The quantum computer starts here, for example. This looks -at a glance- like a decent Wikipedia article on it. Make one comment, which will be your vote. (Any other comments from you on this thread will be deleted.) Feel free to tell the world what this paper means to you.... and why you voted for it over the others..... Or you can just make a comment that registers your vote, making whatever noise you want! Voting ends 9:00pm, Jan 15th Pacific Standard Time. -cvj
