Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of the theory "cat in the box"

In this November, the Interstellar travel Service celebrated the 200th anniversary of John Doe’s well-known theory - Cat in the Box, which fundamentally changed the Cat’s understanding of space. Interstellar travel supporter have a chance to visit the “Cat in the Box” museum and watch a documentary film about not only John’s life but also the application “Cat in the Box” in interstellar travel.

It is undeniable that travelling to another planet outside our star system was impossible in just 200 years ago. Fortunately, with the technology innovation based on “Cat in the Box” theory, cats nowadays have a new bright era.

Interstellar travel

“Cat in the box” was the result of John Doe’s subatomic research lasting in nearly 9 years, from 2407 to November 2415. This theory has remarked a revolutionized scientific perception since its publication. As Goliath Kaiser - Professor of Physics and History of Science at SandHole Institute of Technology (SHIT) said: “Doe has basically changed the radical perceptions of space and time, opening the door to the universe and some of the most gravitation aspects of the theory regarding black holes.” It might be difficult to have a deeply understanding of “Cat in the Box”. In a simple way, “Cat in the Box” is a metaphor for quantum superposition. Scientists have held that everything in universe can only exist in one state for a period of time, whether viewed or not. “Cat in the Box”, however, explains that quantum states have certainly depended on observers. Cats will sleep or eat while the box is opened but we will have no idea what they are doing inside when the box is closed. In other words, all possible abilities exist inside the box, even if it’s a non-cat species as long as we do not open the box.

You can imagine to LEDs on the screen of TV to get what I meant. They are full color dots and which dot is revealed depends much on time and space. That is exactly the way we apply “Cat in the Box” to Interstellar travel, any destination that we want to go to has definitely existed there. It is only a matter of finding out the quantum state connection between where you go and your destination. Sounds simple, but it takes more than 50 years of searching to get the first results. Using the quantum entanglement effect, in which the states of two or more objects are immediately related to each other regardless of their distance, scientists have begun to find ways of interstellar travel.

In 1478, after more than 20 years of searching and manufacturing, scientists succeeded in activating the black hold RFI-2023, which causes the black hole to become a “complicated black hole” state. As results, we can connect to another black hole in universe in specific direction of space and time. The black hole has projectile out an interstellar gate, making interstellar travel completely possible. The first gate was created on 19 August, 2486, marking a new era of Cat-22.

Be considered as a giant sphere of space in the horizon, the space gate projecting from a black hole is 30 times larger than our planet. When it is cooler and darker at night, we can contemplate the incredible impression of one of the greatest wonders in the history of the cat.

Thus far, a much serious problem arise: the carefully calculated time to accelerate the black hole can not ensure the stable of “complicated black hole” status. As a result, we have different destinations and can not be determined after acceleration is triggered everytime.

For a period of 50 years, scientists worked on the accuracy of interstellar travel destinations, until 2 times Finn Prize winner Professor Thalos Hyder theorized “uncertain”, which indicates that this is an unsolvable problem. Sharing about this issue, Professor Goliath Kaiser said: "According to Thalos Hyder, with the technology of "black hole entanglement", the destination is always uncertain. This explanation makes scientists like to drop an old shackles, bravely skipping accuracy research to embark on research on keeping the connection between two destinations stable. It can be said that Thalos Hyder's contribution to interstellar travel is huge."

Currently, interstellar travel has achieved certain successes, notably as a bridge between Cat-22 and Earth, where cats and "human" servants also live. However, the road to return to the original planet of our cats, perhaps still takes a long time.

History tour at the museum, the "Cat in the box" memorial program

In addition to the history tour at the museum, the "Cat in the box" memorial program is still going on with many other activities such as "cat in the box" cosplay, laser running competition. , eating contest, sleeping test ... were deployed all over the country.
