Not content with describing a quantum physics thought experiment which gives a 50-50 chance of killing a cat, in his latest book John Gribbin introduces a new and even deadlier experiment. Instead of a single cat, there are now two kittens and a 100% chance that one of them will die! Don't worry it's only a thought experiment but it nicely illustrates the advances in our understanding of the quantum world since Gribbin wrote his first book on the topic more than a decade ago.
