Physics in action

this is pointless but I thought I's share.

I'm currently observing a demonstration of quantum physics on my desk.

The sun is shining through the railings on the car park behind my office. It's producing a diffraction pattern on my monitor 200m away.

Indeed I can confirm for you now that light is indeed both a wave and a particle :good:
