A couple of months ago we came across the following pair of coffee mugs in a nearby "pop culture" store.
The physics teacher in me couldnt help it, and so we purchased these somewhat "morbid" mugs.
For those that do not know, Schrödinger's Cat is a famous thought experiment devised in the 1930s by the physicist Erwin Schrödinger in an attempt to describe quantum mechanics (i.e. How subatomic particles behave).
His experiment (which was never actually carried out) placed a cat in a sealed box with a flak of poison and a radioactive source. If a Geiger counter detected radiation it would shatter the flask, releasing the poison and thus killing the cat.
However, without actually opening the box, the cat is presumed to be simultaneously alive and dead, since there is no actual way to determine this without looking in the box.
A morbidly symmetrical concept indeed!
