60-second adventures in thought

Ever wonder what undead cats have to do with quantum mechanics? Well, The Open University explains it all in this delightfully animated, 60-second thought experiment.

The last in a series of 6, Schrödinger's cat is my personal favorite, but you can see other 60-second Adventures in Thought, including The Grandfather Paradox and Hilbert's Infinite Hotel, through The Open University.
