  • Scientists conduct “delayed choice” experiment in space

    A photon, or a quantum of light, has been known to have both wave-like and particle like properties. It can behave like a speeding bullet-like particle or like a rippling wave, depending on the way it is studied, but not both at the same time. This uncertainty, in some sense, is the essence of quantum physics.
