You’ve probably all heard of Schrödinger’s Cat, that strange thought experiment designed by Erwin Schrödinger to show how the strange predictions of quantum theory could impact the real world. No cats will be harmed in the making of this episode, maybe.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/astronomycast/~4/xrbzBd6r4k0

This reminds me of a joke I heard Hank Green tell.
Schrödinger and Heisenberg were driving down a road and a policeman pulls them over. He asks "Do you know how fast you were going?" and Heisenberg replies "I can't tell you how fast we were going, but I can tell you exactly where we were." The policeman thought that was suspicious enough to inspect the car's trunk. He comes back to the window and asks "Do you know you have a dead cat in your trunk?", and Schrödinger says "We do now!"
