Submission + - Strong Words on Weak Quantum Measurement

quax writes: Recently news made the round that the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle was supposedly violated. (Slashdot reported on it here).

The underlying papers are quite mundane. But all caveats get stripped out in the reporting until only the wrong sensational twist remains.

Heisenberg did at some point speculate that the uncertainty relationship may be due to the measurements disturbing the system that is probed, but this idea has long been relegated to the dust bin of science history. So Robert R. Tucci deservedly demolishes this class of weak measurement experiments.
