By manipulating microwave photons trapped in a superconducting cavity, we realize in the laboratory the « thought experiments » imagined by Bohr, Einstein and Schrödinger to illustrate the counter-intuitive concepts of quantum physics. Photonic superposition states recalling the famous Schrödinger cat suspended between life and death have been prepared and their decoherence observed in experiments which explore the boundary between the quantum and the classical worlds
