Macroscopic quantum-like effects + life on mars

Single-particle interference observed for macroscopic objects [source]:
"The breakthrough came when we found that a bouncing drop could 'surf' on its own wave and form what we called a 'walker'," said Couder. "A walker is an object having some properties due to the drop, together with others due to the wave. The walker's wave is similar to the surface wave of a raindrop falling on a puddle, but here it is emitted periodically by the bouncing drop."
To detect the walker's interference with itself, Couder and Fort glued three thick strips to the bottom of a cell placed in a tank, reducing the depth of the liquid above the strips.
