### Schrödinger’s Cat Raised a Valid Objection to the Copenhagen Interpretation

The thought experiment developed by Erwin Schrödinger, called Schrödinger’s Cat, was supposed to discredit the Copenhagen interpretation, but did it succeed? […]

The thought experiment developed by Erwin Schrödinger, called Schrödinger’s Cat, was supposed to discredit the Copenhagen interpretation, but did it succeed? […]

Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen developed the EPR paradox to demonstrate that the Copenhagen interpretation was incomplete, but did it actually work? […]

Albert Einstein didn’t agree with the Copenhagen interpretation, even though a consensus had been building around it in the late 1920s. […]

Einstein was skeptical of the new interpretation of quantum theory proposed by Max Born. He did not subscribe to the belief that the quantum universe was probabilistic in nature. […]

The new generation of quantum theorists discovered that the quantum universe was probabilistic in nature, but Einstein was convinced determinism lay at the foundation of the universe. […]

Although Einstein was skeptical about the existence of black holes, his own theory suggested otherwise. Bringing us closer to the discovery of black holes was an observation regarding the behavior of collapsing stars. A mysterious object called Cygnus X-1 at last delivered proof. […]

What gives stars their power? And what happens when a star runs out of fuel? Exploring the various theories behind star collapse and the stages of collapse—including white dwarfs and neutron stars—eventually leads us to black holes. […]

Black holes are a direct consequence of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. However, when examining the views of Einstein on black holes, we see that he was skeptical. Interestingly, an astronomer’s efforts to solve Einstein’s field equations end up pointing toward the existence of black holes. […]

The general theory of relativity is recognized as Einstein’s greatest achievement, but arriving at the final version was not an easy task. It involved years of missteps and disappointments. Discover how Einstein finally connected all the dots and how the theory holds up in light of today’s scientific advancements. […]

Einstein’s field equations would lead him down the path to perfecting his general theory of relativity. That path, though, was fraught with frustration as the numbers weren’t working out. Learn how even history’s most brilliant minds must persevere through setbacks. […]
