Quantum theorist Erwin Schrvdinger invented his now-famous cat to illustrate the apparently impossible conundrums associated with quantum physics. The cat lives in an opaque box with a fiendish device that randomly feeds it either food, allowing it to live, or poison, which kills it.

Basitleştirilmiş kuantum fiziği indeksi. Indekste merak ettiğiniz başlıktan başlayıp, baştan sona okumak yerine girdiğiniz bir konudan diğerine geçiş yapıyorsunuz. Çok derin konular haddinden fazla basit anlatildigindan pek cok konu havada kaliyor, bilimkurgu kivaminda.. Arada karıştırmak için ideal.

This book is a great compilation of scientific ideas, theories, discoveries and inventions. It refreshed my thinking for many great scientific ideas. Each chapter acted as a catalyst to wake up fresh every morning and a buffer against boredom. An encyclopedia worth knowing!

This is light reading to explain a lot of really complex engineering and physics concepts. If you want to read on the beach, but still want to walk away like you learned a little something.

Some of the science is actually a little outdated now, but it's a great introduction to some weird physics.
