The topic of today’s toon is a bizarre thought experiment involving a cat that’s both dead and alive. Confused? Join the club. (Disclaimer: No cats were killed for the experiment)
You can read about the experiment in detail here, but the idea is that whether a cat in an isolated chamber, is alive or dead is directly related to the quantum state of a particle in the chamber, and as long as no measurement is made, meaning no one looks in to the closed chamber to check, the cat, like the particle, must be in a superposition of states. But in case of the cat, the bizarre thing is, that it must be in a superposition of dead and alive states!
