Electromagnetic particle shower where particle tracks (moving from bottom to top) show multiple electron-positron pairs created from the energy of a high-energy gamma ray photon produced by a neutrino collision

Schrodinger's cat helped illustrate a seemingly paradoxical reading of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. A cat is hidden in a box. A random process either kills the cat or doesn't. Until an observer opens the box to look, the cat is both alive and dead.

Superpositions are well-illustrated by the thought experiment known as Schrödinger's cat. If a cat is put in a box with a poison that may or may not be released, it can be said that the cat is in a superpostion of being both dead and alive.
