Light and the double slit experiment

Science is far less clear cut than you might think and I will blog more about some scientific anomalies. Homeopathy is often criticised for being ‘unscientific’ as dilutions cannot be adequately explained by current scientific models.. but there are many things such as light, radiation and microwaves that do not always behave as you might expect.

Light is extraordinary for many reasons and can act as particles or waves.. or sometimes both. The double slit experiment is quite hard to explain to non-scientists but this is a fabulous Royal Institution video with Jim Al Khalili demonstrating what it is and why it cannot really be explained.
