Physicists can predict the jumps of Schrodinger's cat (and finally save it)

Yale researchers claim in a paper published in Nature that they have figured out how to catch and save Schrödinger’s cat.

Press release here :-

"To catch and reverse a quantum jump mid-flight" by Minev et. al., Nature abstract :-

PhD dissertation, Minev, 2018, at arXiv :-

"The Yale team used a special approach to indirectly monitor a superconducting artificial atom, with three microwave generators..."

This cat suspected catch in the story and pounced on a rat at this text. We are talking here about orders of magnitude (and the EM version) in quantum scale over the nuclear forces that govern the decay of the sort of radionuclide that Schödinger had in mind. It wouldn't surprise me in the least that precursors to decoherence in such relatively h u g e systems might be detectable.
I would add to that the crucial element of pre-monitoring. Pre-monitoring is a class of monitoring. You may not look inside Schödinger box. You may not peek. You may not set up femtoscopic surveillance cameras to spy on the radium's nucleons and see if any are getting antsy. Even if you could."
