Quantum MechanicsEdit

Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) was an Austrian physicist who made important steps in the advancement of quantum theory, as well as other fields of science.

Schrödinger is most recognized in quantum theory for his development of the the Schrödinger Equation in 1926, which is a second-order linear hyperbolic partial differential equation for waves in physics. This has been lauded as one of the most influential discovers in the twentieth century, as it allows for the interpretation of future dynamic properties, which makes finely-tuned electronic systems like MRI machines possible.

Perhaps what Schrödinger is most known for by the public at large, however, is his thought experiment critiquing the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics in 1935, known as Schrödinger's cat. The Copenhagen interpretation states that anything and everything possible could be happening at once, until it is observed by an individual. Once that happens, the event seen becomes concrete and reality while any other possibilities no longer exist. In response, he created the idea of Schrödinger's cat, pointing out that it was ludicrous to believe that an unseen cat locked in a steel chamber with a radioactive atom is both dead and alive until seen by an individual.

EffectsEdit

Worn by Schrödinger's cat Milton during the 1930s, this leather collar will activate randomly when it is worn or held, killing anything nearby in a 1-4 meter radius by manifesting quicksilver in their veins. When worn by Shodi, it neutralizes both his toxic fur and the effects of the collar, rendering both of them safe.
