Ever Wonder What Schrödinger’s Cat May Have Thought?

Sure, it was a thought experiment, but I’m sure some people expected there to be an actual cat in the box Schrödinger used for a thought experiment on superposition.  I don’t think Sarah Donner is in this group, but she’s released a song that aims to capture what that cat might be thinking.

The cat’s not happy.  Sure, that’s not a surprise, really, but Donner put together a lovely short tune and produced this video at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.

The song, The Rebuttal of Schrödinger’s Cat, is part of Donner’s latest album, That Is A Pegasus.  Science occasionally features in some of her songs, but more as inspiration than as subject matter (if that makes any sense).  You can get Donner’s music (electronically) via her Bandcamp site, and more tangible versions on her website.
