CAT CLUES  Schrödinger’s mythical cat is alive and dead at the same time. Scientists have wrangled microwaves into similarly bizarre quantum states, and now they are taking the experiment a step further, splitting one catlike state into two boxes.

PARTICLE IMPERSONATOR Scientists have made the first quasiparticle collider, which smashes together faux-particles that appear in solids. In this illustration, quasiparticles (red and blue lines) collide head-on in a solid material (grid of spheres) releasing a burst of light.
