This image shows three of the most important physicists when it comes to quantum physics. Planck, Einstein and de Broglie all made major contributions to the field. I chose simple images of them because of their simple equations. Also, they all had moustaches.

Schrödinger’s Cat... Is it dead? Is it alive? That's the argument that ensues, that upon opening the box, both observer and the dead-and-alive cat now split into two realities. One reality, where the observer sees said dead cat, and another, where it's alive. What do you have to lose then? When you can choose and handpick your own reality, steer destiny in whichever direction as you please? The spoon exists only in the Matrix, which really means it doesn't exist, right?

Hydrogen — one electron orbiting one proton. It’s a simple as an atom can get. A common image of the electron in hydrogen is like a planet around the Sun. Yet the quantum theory of atoms shows that even in this simplest of cases gives amazing depth: all these patterns are the lowest energy levels for the electron — each of them a 3D version of the standing waves you get on a guitar string. Atoms are beautiful.

This vintage logo was inspired by the Nobel prize awarded the Feynman, Schwinger and Tomonaga in 1965 for their work in the field of quantum electrodynamics. This image is great for physicists, physics enthusiasts, or particle science lovers in general.
