SiS (Super!) Quickie: Happy Birthday, Erwin Schrödinger!

Today’s Google Doodle celebrates physicist Erwin Schrödinger, who is best known (in popular culture, at least) for his cat-based thought experiment.

The cover of one of my favorite college textbooks paid homage to this experiment: the front cover featured a drawing of a living cat, while the back cover featured a drawing of the same cat after it…let’s pretend it just fell asleep.

Who says physicists don’t have a sense of humor?
