Quantum Mechanics - Electrons

More geek stuff . . . .

Clips from a BBC documentary explaining the arguments from the 1920's until now as to whether electrons are particles, waves or both.

It outlines Einstein's distaste at Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and is a good starting point in realizing that the universe is far, far stranger than can be imagined.

Also has some interesting footage showing the impact that the pursuit of quantum physics has made to our world today.
