    Schrodinger's cat can be saved

    Physicists can predict the jumps of Schrodinger's cat (and finally save it)

    Yale researchers have figured out how to catch and save Schrödinger's famous cat, the symbol of quantum superposition and unpredictability, by anticipating its jumps and acting in real time to save it from proverbial doom. In the process, they overturn years of cornerstone dogma in quantum physics. The discovery enables researchers to set up an early warning system for imminent jumps of artificial atoms containing quantum information. A study announcing the discovery appears in the June 3 online edition of the journal Nature.
    And as required on any post mentioning cats...

    This makes my brain hurt. I guess that's why I never went into physics. I do seem to remember artificial atoms of some sort being part of the Three Body Problem, but perhaps I'm remembering that wrong.
