slits, just like the photon. But since we are more used to thinking of an electron as a single
particle it always struck me a stranger.

In fact, quantum mechanics says that if we would
perform the same experiment with a bowling ball
(and we had a few billion years to perform the
experiment) the same interference pattern would
