Because, more or less, I am one. I've tried to get informed on this stuff a couple times, like I saw that "What the Bleep Do We Know" video, and read some bits here and there on the net. From what I've gathered so far, the science community has established principles that allow them to make pretty accurate predictions about quantum phenomena. I'm not really interested in these principles though (I'm not trying to solve physics riddles tbh) but I'm intrigued by how they figured these principles out in the first place (for instance what apparatus did they use to test wave/particle duality in WTBDWK??). Are there landmark experiments that are famous in the quantum physics community? I'd like to know the people who did them, how they were done and basically just the whole history behind this science. Again I'm totally a layman/idiot so I'd prefer something less like a text book to get me to pass an exam and more like a history lesson - but not skimp on the details!! You catch my drift? Thanks in advance.
