Quantum Physics for Dummies - the strange double slit experiment

Wonderful video on the famous double slit experiment that leaves physicists puzzled, is matter waves or 'pieces' and why does viewing it change the answer?

The experiment reminds me of an experiment we were asked to do in high school, Fruanhofer's diffraction experiment. We used light in that experiment to observe the same interference pattern. Except we got concentric rings.

The dual nature of matter and energy is well established. As for matter waves, I dont know if i remember correctly or not as its been a while but I was told that they are probabilistic waves and have no mass. The Heisenberg uncertainty principle also applies somehow as does schrodinger's wave equation.

Here is a pretty good resource for those who would like to know more:
