For people unfamiliar with science, science can be a world filled with philosophical discussions and creativity that can rival any liberal arts. In the world of physics, scientists have long studied the thought experiment known as Schrodinger’s Cat. The idea is if you put a cat in a box with a 50-50 chance of being killed, is the cat alive or dead? The thought experiment says that the cat is neither dead nor alive until the observer actually opens the box to look inside.
If this sounds crazy, then you can understand the often fascinating dilemmas facing scientists in all fields of science. If you’re curious about the world, don’t let your fear of math or science keep you from studying science in any form. If you’re a cat lover, you can start by learning more about Schrodinger’s Cat.
