Electron filmed for first time ever

Electron filmed for first time ever from

Now it is possible to see a movie of an electron. The movie shows how an electron rides on a light wave after just having been pulled away from an atom. This is the first time an electron has ever been filmed, and the results are presented in the latest issue of Physical Review Letters.


You need to scroll down the a bit on the page, linked just above, in order to view the movie. I wish the article explained more clearly what it is we're actually seeing!
