Description of this Book

Schrodinger used this cat in a box to dream up the first quantum paradox. A paradox is something that doesn't make sense. there must be an assumption that is causing offense. Schrodinger's cat is a thought experiment meant to explain the flawed interpretation of quantum superposition. Chris Ferrie has broken down the theory into a whimsical picture book perfect for science nerds. Even the youngest generation of future scientists will enjoy the playful cadence of this lighthearted story!
