Law360, New York (August 3, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT) -- Quantum physicist Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrodinger was a piker compared to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Schrodinger’s famous thought experiment sought to show that a cat could be alive and dead simultaneously, so long as it remained sealed in a box with poison that might or might not have been released.
Schrodinger assumed, however, that once an observer peered into the box, the superposition would collapse and the cat would be found to be either alive or dead.
