So that's lower resolution than the 12 year old, 22.2" IBM T220? Yeah, it's mind-blowing all right.
Where did it all go so horribly wrong?

Only if you approach 0 from the positive side. The limit of 1/n for n -> 0+ is infinity; the limit of 1/n for n -> 0- is minus infinity.
Which is why you can't in general assign a value of infinity to 1/0.

Yeah, it might interpret it as a "thumbs up"... Come to think of it, that interpretation would probably be correct anyway.

But it IS possible to understand the math behind the uncertainty principle, even though the OP obviously doesn't.

Yeah, okay, so I wasn't completely stringent in my choise of words, but I think the point got through ;)

The point is that if you measure whether or not the photon went through slit 1, you "force it to take a stand", and choose which slit to go through. Thus, the wave function collapses and you no longer get the interference pattern, but just two blops of photons on the back wall.

I don't think you know what "exceeding the goal" means. This wasn't expected to be a perfect, smooth flight with a soft landing - it was the very first flight of an incomplete version of an all new design, and the succes criterium was simply "getting liftoff". And by that standard, it was a huge success!

X61s here. Last of the breed; I really wish it was available with Sandy Bridge and perhaps a 1400x1050 IPS-screen... Guess I will have to bite the bullet and buy an X220, in spite of the 16:9 screen.
