Quantum Jumps and Schrodinger's Cat  are predictable

Quantum Jumps and Schrodinger's Cat are predictable

Quantum Jumps are predicted using microwave monitoring. Weird. "Yale researchers have figured out how to catch and save Schrödinger's famous cat, the symbol of quantum superposition and unpredictability, by anticipating its jumps and acting in real time to save it from proverbial doom." - physorg
