I took Electronics 101 and I understand about 2% of what the hell this guy is talking about.

To professor: Nice outfit.

Ok, to all of the people stating "i took 12th grade physics and i understand all of this" you are wrong -- if you think you understand physics then you actually don't...at all.(period)

Go google "Heisenberg uncertainty principle" or "quantum mechanics" or "wave duality" or "planck's constant" -- there is a ton of very interesting and comprehensible material out there (be warned that the math involved is highly complex).

A last note to the subjects of my first remark -- I thought exactly the same way as you did, then I decided to major in physics in college...

Honestly people, SOMEONE would have thought about the detectors interfering. This is a problem for some of the greatest minds we know, and YOU guys thought of it. =P

Just out of the jungle, here on Earth. Excellent video, and good brain candy.

Observing the experimemt doesn't change anything, this video just makes it seem that way. It's the presence of the detectors that change the outcome of the experiment.

Finally a good explanation
I've heard of this many times but not understood the details of the experiment
Now I finally get it!

Perhaps we control the ability to make it behave through some way or another. Pretty freaky, if you ask me. Just imagine, the ability to control particles just by observing them. The applications are endless!

HAHAHA!! I took gr 12 physics, I know exactly how this crap works. Nicely animated video tho

The controlled environment of how they did this test is not specified. Whenever you pass electricity through a wire it creates a radio frequency (that is unless it is twisted so those frequencies cancel out). Any sort of electrical device that is used to measure (or observe) this experiment can very well interfere with it just because you're playing around in a sub-molecular level. Also, the heteroscedasticies of radio waves and electron-interfering equpiment does not seem to be accounted for.

This is like Heizzenburg's rule of uncertainty, stating that observing something changes its behavior therefore we cant be sure of anything.
ANYTHING AT ALL

This is confusing... Does this mean that when nothing can see something, it is doing every possible thing it could possibly do at that moment?

Wow. Thats drating cool.

i read a book on quantum phicsics when i was like, 5. and i understood it. almost. but when your like, 5, you understand everything.

This is kind of similar to the question of does the refrigerator light turn off when you close the door? It's designed to do so, it seems to do so, but it's impossible to know. If I put a camera in the fridge I'll know that the light went out, but how do I know that it's acting the same way when the camera isn't in the fridge.

That's actually one thing that I've always gone crazy over. How do I know that the refrigerator (or anything else) doesn't act differently when no one is watching it?

maybe the observing device interfered with the electron?

I don't know if anyone has said this but, maybe this explains that feeling you get when you are being looked at from behind you...
