The effect becomes more pronounced if the light can be turned down until it is sending out one photon at a time. If one slit is open, a photon can travel that route without interference. Leave just the other slit open, and the photon can travel that other route without interference. If both slits are open, the photon appears to “know” that it will experience interference and will travel neither route! ” Turn the light back up to multiphotons, open both slits, and place a photon detector at one slit so it can observe photons as they pass through.

Far from swift, strong, and sleek, early airplanes were underpowered, flimsy canvas and frail wood contrap­ tions that struggled to get airborne and frequently failed to stay there. No phospho­ rescent green radar blips warned ocean liners that they were about to collide with each other or with icebergs. Mars seemed to be a shimmering, canal-crossed disc in the telescopic lens. There was no radio, no talkies. And as for medicine, well, just be thankful you didn’t have to be hospitalized in those days.
