Shaking Schroedinger's cat



St. Louis MO (SPX) Jun 22, 2017
You've probably heard about Schrodinger's cat, which famously is trapped in a box with a kill mechanism that is activated if a radioactive atom decays, releasing radiation. The act of looking in the box collapses the atom's wave function - the mathematical description of its state --from a "superposition" of states to a definite state, which either kills the cat or let's it live to see another day. But did you know that if you peek into the cat box frequently - thousands of times a second - you ca ... read more
