Schrodinger’s cat

  1. Things We Saw Today: Tiny Captain Marvel Cosplay

    Parenting done right.

    Photographer Yaro Jane dressed her daughter up as Captain Marvel, and the resulting photos have been approved by both Kelly Sue DeConnick and Gail Simone. Killer.

  2. Schrödinger’s Cat, Refuted Beautifully By A Singing Cat [VIDEO]

    Surely she has some thoughts on string theory, too?

    Sarah Donner has a set of pipes, a pack of cats, and a greater understanding of physics than I do. Why wasn't high school this engaging?

  3. Short Film “Many Worlds” Changes in Real Time Based on Audience Biometrics

    The short film "Many Ways" is like a choose-your-own-adventure story, but instead of making a conscious decision about which page to turn to, the film automatically edits itself in real time, as the audience watches, based on sensors that measure things like muscle tension and heart rate. The film changes based on how the audience is physically reacting to it, and can therefor end in one of four ways.

  4. Schrödinger’s Cat Can Haz Concise Explanatory Video [Video]

    Minutephysics is a neat little YouTube channel that explains philosophical questions in 45 second videos complex physics concepts in one minute videos. This week they tackle Schrödinger's cat, a thought experiment that's almost as hard to spell as it is to explain. Chances are if you browse this site, you've at least heard of Schrödinger's cat, but chances are also that if you're not some sort of quantum physicist, you don't totally understand it. If that's the case, give this video a quick watch and see if it helps. If you still don't quite understand it, have someone watch you try; that'll make you collapse into one state or another. That's how it works, right? Pfft, simple.

  5. The Inception-Like Nesting Observations That Make up Schrödinger’s Cat

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    Miunutephysics, a YouTube Channel dedicated to explaining advanced physics concepts in less than two minutes with minimal illustrations. We like cats, right? And science? Have I grasped the Internet? (via Neatorama.)

  6. Things We Saw Today: The Muppet Teaser Poster

    Things We Saw Today

    Okay, before we acknowledge how awesome this is, let's address the flash on Kermit's chest, which is probably just a camera flash or a light reflection, and not some sort of ET thing. Okay. Now: OMG The Muppet Movie is COMING! (At Geek Tyrant)

  7. Scientists Have Figured How to Teleport (Not People)

    We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

    Disclaimer before proceeding: I am not an expert in quantum mechanics. But since this is about teleportation, and that's awesome, it was something I chose to cover today. And now, the news. A team of Japanese and Australian researchers at the University of Tokyo have successfully accomplished the teleportation of quantum information, which means that wave packets (of light) were broken down and reassembled somewhere else. This opens up the possibilities for advancements in quantum computing. Human transportation ... not so much. Sorry, Seth Brundle.

  8. Schrödinger’s Cat Is AliveDead

    Erwin Schrödinger's famous quantum physics thought experiment gets the typographic treatment it deserves. Original source unknown. (Sidenote: According to Wired, ThinkGeek is releasing a "Schrödinger’s Cat Executive Decision Maker" Magic 8 Ball-type thingie in early 2011.) (via SciencePunk)
