Twoslit & delayed choice according to string theory

    String theory is touted as bridging the gap between general relativity and quantum mechanics, so I'm presuming it can explain everything in QM.

    How does string theory explain the results of the two slit experiment and the delayed-choice experiment?

    (pop science reader's answer, if possible, please)

    String theory is still quantum; it can't EXPLAIN quantum phenomena because it IS a quantum phenomenon. So SST doesn't say anything more about these issues than QM does.

    Or doesn't it? (I know you know what I am thinking right now.)
