Macroscopic Quantum Superposition...The Cat Is A Lie.

Physicists at UC Santa Barbara published recently their results of experiments to create what is effectively a 'Quantum Microphone'. Part of the experiment showed a macroscopic realization of quantum superpositioning: the device simultaneously exists in moving and stationary states.

Readers with a background in or understanding of quantum mechanics that are not already aware of this marvelous work can find more detailed publications in Nature, and through the web portals for the researchers involved.
