#34 Brains

A couple weeks ago I watched a movie recorded in CERN installations by Phd students in where higgs radiation turned people into a superposition of dead and alive. YES, ZOMBIES. The movie is pretty well made and it satisfaces all of my geekness. You can watch the full movie here.
So here we have a very angry zombie Schrödinger's cat that wants brainsssss. Specially Erwin Schrödinger's one.

#33 Dirac Mood

Paul Dirac had a very quiet and taciturn nature. His colleages in Cambridge even defined an unit, the "dirac", which represents the minimun amount of words that can be spoken on a conversation. Thoroughly, a word per hour. If you want to know more about Dirac, hey, you just have to search for him in Wikipedia.

This joke came to me after a conversation with my dear friend Paloma (a.k.a Palomeision) in which we both were particularly... monosyllabic. Then, after a long silence, she said to me 'feeling Dirac today?'. I laughed a lot.

#32 Pauli's

This one is for my classmate Jorge, who had the idea.

Pauli's exclusion principle establishes that two identical fermions can't be found in the same quantum state at the same time.

#30 Chandrasekhar Limit

Chandrasekhar limit is the maximum mass of a stable white dwarf star. If the white dwarf core reaches a mass above that limit, which is about 1,44 times  the solar mass, the electron degeneracy pressure is insuffcient to balance the gravitational self-attraction of the collapsing dead star and it can end up as a neutron star or even into a black hole if the mass is high enough.

#26 Fancy Schrödinger's Cat

If you're going to a physics meeting, better be elegant and have a moustache.
This one is for Sara, who has a pretty cool fancy cat (and other fancy animals, like a whale) drawed on her Atomic and Molecular physics notes.

#22 Schrödinger's Fat

Poor Dinger, I don't think that's how general relativity works, I think he just ate too much lasagna (was it poisoned?).

#20 Divergence

This is called the Gauss's law for magnetism, and it is one of the Maxwell's equations that form the foundation of classical electrodynamics, classical optics and electric circuits. Gauss's law for magnetism states that there are no isolated magnetic charges but there are dipoles which generates the magnetic field. As you can check easily, when you have a magnet it always have a north pole and a south pole, and if you cut it apart, you'll have two magnets each of them with its own north and south pole. You can't have a north pole in one hand and a south pole in the other. That appropriate behaviour of magnetic charge make it possible for the compasses to work and to point the north pole of the Earth.

So, it is VERY important. Never EVER forget that divergence of B is zero, you'll never know when this information would save your ass.

#18 Entropy

Cats do a great job keeping nature laws as they should be. They don't even need to be quantum cats to increase the entropy of every place they walk in. 
Sorry for the great delay since the last entry. I've been very busy with the new year start at college, but now I collected some new ideas thanks to my friends and classmates. Thanks to all who support Schrödinger's Cat!

#17 Boundary Conditions

Quantum cats have a lot of problems in their everyday life, but it's easier to solve them using periodic boundary conditions.

#16 Circuits

This is a little joke dedicated to my great friend Víctor, who is leaving on monday to stay the whole year studying in England with an Erasmus scholarship. I'm gonna miss him so much since he's my best friend at college and we've passed the last 4 years sitting together in class, chatting, laughing and making fun of everything just like 10 years old kids (all teachers probably hate us). I don't know what am I going to do without him. Seriously, I'm screwed, he was the smart, I need him to solve the problems and explain them to me! (Joking). This picture is something we usually drawed on our Electronics notes. Since we hated that subject and solving circuits is just a nightmare, we usually added cats to make them... furrier. It's funny because this circuit doesn't even have nodes.

Have fun in Manchester Víctor! I'll miss you!

#15 Classic

Probably the most classical, typical and still hilarious physics joke. Approximations, approximations everywhere.

I'm starting a new year at college next week so probably I won't have all the time I'd like to draw a new strip every day. The good news is that I'm sure new subjects will inspire new funny facts about physics.

#14 Notation

Dirac notation may be tricky sometimes, but it is very useful for describing quantum states.

#12 Tricks

Some people may think that Schrödinger's cat is very bad doing tricks, but be actually plays dead all the time. He plays alive at the same time. Well, it's complicated.

#11 Degenerate level

I'm not very into pedobear jokes, but seriously, quantum physics deserves it with all those degenerate levels and perturbed states and s**t.

#10 Curiosity

Thanks to Peube for suggesting the idea, unless this is probably not what he was thinking about :)

#8 Dielectric

The high potential difference between the paws of Schrödinger's cat caused the dielectric rupture of air and it became a conductor.

Doctors thought that Timmy was slept & awake at the same time, but actually he was dead & awake at the same time.

#3 Schrödinger's cat meets Pavlov's dog

I encourage you to read about Pavlov's dog theory and anti-tank dogs from the soviet army druing WWII. Yup, quite cruel, but exploding things are always funny.

(Don't misunderstand me, I'm a defender of animal rights, but if you can't stand a little touch of black humour just get out of here)

No dog or cat was damaged during the drawing of this strip.

#2 Quantum cat (Alternative ending)

As the quantum eingenstate of Schrödinger's cat is 50% dead 50% alive, at the very moment someone tries to clear up in which of those possibilities he really is, the state immediately changes to one of the possible answers with a certain probability, and the other one disspaears. This time, the cat was lucky.

#1 Quantum Cat

As the quantum eingenstate of Schrödinger's cat is 50% dead 50% alive, at the very moment someone tries to clear up in which of those possibilities he really is, the state immediately changes to one of the possible answers with a certain probability, and the other one disspaears. This time, the cat was unlucky.

Let's get started

 Welcome to the first entry of Adventures of Schrödinger's cat, a webcomic about cats but also about science with a touch of black humour.

I've never created a webcomic before, this is my first try so hope you like it and hope you love the little Schrödinger's cat as much as I do.

I'll try to upload a new comic strip at least once or twice a week, but mostly every time I have a new idea and the time to draw it.

So, enjoy and have fun!
