"Quantum Mechanics" are not trying to "fleece" anyone. They have chosen to study a theory that is well-known to be imperfect, but has quite a bit
of evidence for its at least partial truth. Quantum Entanglement is a concept that has been proved to function.
The experiment is very interesting, and will have to be factored into current versions of the theory. However, it is true that in a highly
chance-connected field such as Quantum Physics, the possibility of a "statistical fluke" has to be acknowledged. It's highly unlikelythat sheer
chance made the photons glide right through space time instead of oozing through the foam like Venus being born, but it's possible.
And yeah, this doesn't definitively show that spacetime isn't foamy -- it just shows that it's not quite the sort of foam they thought it was.
Man, now I want a beer. Which is weird, because foam is bad there.
