The headline is sensationlist and misleading. What is being done is a
series of weak measurements that capturing the change from a
superposition to a non superposed state. An MWIer would say this is
capturing the process of decoherence. It is most certainly not
demonstrating wave function collapse is occurring, interesting though
the experiment is for technical reasons.
