John R Gribbin is a British science writer, an astrophysicist, and a visiting fellow in astronomy at the University of Sussex The topical range of his prolific writings includes quantum physics, biographies of famous scientists, human evolution, the origins of the universe, climate change and global warming His also writes science fiction.John Gribbin graduated with his bachelor s degree in physics from the University of Sussex in 1966 Gribbin then earned his master of science M.Sc degree in astronomy in 1967, also from the Univ of Sussex, and he earned his Ph.D in astrophysics from the University of Cambridge 1971.In 1968, Gribbin worked as one of Fred Hoyle s research students at the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy, and wrote a number of stories for New Scientist about the Institute s research and what were eventually discovered to be pulsars.In 1974, Gribbin published, along with Stephen Plagemann, a book titled The Jupiter Effect, that predicted that the alignment of the planets in quadrant on one side of the Sun on March 10, 1982 would cause gravitational effects that would trigger earthquakes in the San Andreas fault, possibly wiping out Los Angeles and its suburbs Gribbin repudiated The Jupiter Effect in the July 17, 1980, issue of New Scientist magazine in which he stated that he had been too clever by half.In 1984, Gribbin published In Search of Schrodinger s Cat Quantum Physics and Reality, the book that he is best known for, which continues to sell well 28 years after publication It has been described as among the best of the first wave of physics popularisations preceding Stephen Hawking s multi million selling A Brief History of Time Gribbin s book has been cited as an example of how to revive an interest in the study of mathematics.In 2006, Gribbin took part in a BBC radio 4 broadcast as an expert witness Presenter Matthew Parris discussed with Professor Kathy Sykes and Gribbin whether Einstein really was a crazy genius.At the 2009 World Conference of Science Journalists, the Association of British Science Writers presented Gribbin with their Lifetime Achievement award.

Schrdinger s catSchrdinger s cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrdinger in It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics applied to everyday objects The scenario presents a hypothetical cat that may be simultaneously both alive and dead, a state known as a quantum superposition, as a Development of the Atomic Theory American Board In Erwin Schrdinger, an Austrian physicist, took the Bohr atom model one step further Schrdinger used mathematical equations to describe the likelihood of WHAT IS LIFE numerous sections were originally intended WHAT IS LIFE ERWIN SCHRODINGER First published What is life The Physical Aspect of the Living Cell Based on lectures delivered under the auspices of Erwin Schrdinger Wikipdia Biographie N en Erdberg, un quartier de Vienne, Erwin est le fils de Rudolf Schrdinger , un botaniste et fabricant de suaires, et de Georgine Emilia Brenda, la fille d Alexander Bauer, un professeur de chimie .Son pre tait catholique et sa mre luthrienne.
