Explaining the Double-Slit Experiment (wave/particle duality of electrons)


I'm reading God, Stephen Hawking and the Multiverse: What Hawking said and why it matters, by David Hutchings.

I just read Hutchings's explanation of the famous "double slit" experiment, where electrons behave both like particles and like waves. I'm thinking, this may be the best explanation of this famous physics experiment that I have ever read.
