As far as I understand, Schrodinger's Cat was intended to show the absurdity of quantum mechanics. That something as big as a cat can't possible be in a superposition of being dead and alive at once. But as often happens with quantum mechanics, it turns out the absurd was close to what we understand to be the truth.

Once I studied physics and distant galaxies. Now I fly satellites instead, and spend my time thinking and writing about trends in space and technology.
