A long-standing but little known alternative interpretation of quantum mechanics that forgoes the need for a probabilistic model in favor of one that considers waves as inhabiting a hidden medium and guiding the motion of palpable particles.

    (meta) This is a great example of a potentially interesting story ruined by pop-sci presentation. That video is insufferable, but presents a topic (Bohmian Mechanics) [1] that might be interesting to many here. It was possibly made because of a somewhat recently published paper, but never links to it [2] or a lay explanation [3]. This is exactly the kind of tech news I want to be reading, but I hesitate to upvote when it is in this format.
