Schrodinger's Cat 2019

Schrodinger's Cat

Schrodinger's Cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Read more

Schrodinger's Cat is neither alive nor dead. It is a projection in the Simulation/Hologram/Algorithm of Reality

Physicists Made a Flying Army of Laser Schrodinger's Cats
A laser pulse bounced off a rubidium atom and entered the quantum world - taking on the weird physics of "Schrodinger's Cat." Then another one did the same thing. Then another.

The laser pulses didn't grow whiskers or paws. But they became like the famous quantum-physics thought experiment Schrodinger's cat in an important way:

They were large objects that acted like the simultaneously dead-and-alive creatures of subatomic physics - existing in a limbo between two simultaneous, contradictory states.

And the lab in Finland where they were born had no limit on how many they could make. Pulse after pulse turned into a creature of the quantum world.

And those "quantum cats," though they existed for only a fraction of a second inside the experimental machine, had the potential to be immortal.
