Very nice explanation, Tommaso! I enjoyed reading your post. This is one of those experiments that sounds beautiful to a physicist and completely incomprehensible to a layperson.

A fellow physicist once told me that he thinks that particle physics is done for the aesthetic enjoyment of particle physicists. It's a depressing thought if that's all there is to it. But, he is right that we do derive enjoyment from its beauty.
