Has Wave Function Collapse Been Verified Experimentally ?

    In QM theory entangled particles or photons are in superposition for spin (spin up or spin down) or for polarization angles.
    When one of the space like separated pair is measured for a spin or polarization observable,
    the wave function collapses and the other particle is then in a definite spin or polarization state
    in accord with conservation laws. Although Bell Inequality violations show there cannot be
    pre determined values. Have experiments actually verified superposition / wave function collapse with
    space like separated particles ?
