Variations on the double slit experiment, run through a room with a smoke machine. Very incredible to watch how light behaves when it thinks no one is watching. You can literally see the interference between the laser and the screen.

Thanks for the link. I was a physics major in college so definitely got the day 1 double slit lecture. This was fun to watch because of the sophisticated setup. NOT! FiveNines -- so funny and appropriate.

This reminds me of the Werner Heisenberg story when he was in US on a lecture tour. He was driving to Los Alamos when he got pulled over by a New Mexico state trooper. When the trooper went up to the car he said "do you know how fast you were going sir?" Heisenberg said: "no, but I know where I am." The trooper said "well, I clocked you at 75 miles an hour." Heisenberg the said "Ach! Now I'm lost."
