Artist's Description

The first in my “DEAD THINKERS” series. (Schrödinger’s head + name)

Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) was a great scientist, a part-time dabbler in Eastern mysticism, and a noted libertine.

Like his contemporary Albert Einstein, Schrödinger wasn’t comfortable with the weirdness of quantum mechanics; so he decided to do something about it. He took his then-mistress (one of his students) to the Swiss Alps for two weeks. Apparently Schrödinger was quite the multitasker, because he came back armed with his shiny new wavefunction equation.

Unfortunately for Erwin, quantum mechanics remained inconceivably weird., even with his badarse new math. This pissed Schrödinger off so much that he came up with his infamous eponymous thought experiment involving a cat, a box, a radioactive particle and a vial of poison. His intention was to mock the whole enterprise with a grim reflection of its own apparent absurdity.

Despite poor Erwin’s vicious mockery, quantum mechanics remains both the most staggeringly weird and the most experimentally vindicated theory in all of science. Nevertheless, Schrödinger’s wavefunction equation is still used all the bloody time in physics. Hence the design, above.
