Quantum mechanics, that old enemy of common sense, might not be quite what we think. Some experiments with bouncing oil drops show behaviour similar to the double slit experiment, but for reasons of classical mechanics.

I'm not sure how this would explain electron tunneling microscopes. It seems to me they would not work, if this was true. However I like it also because it raises the question, could it be waves within aether that is then guiding the particles?

This is a fascinating article, and it's made this a lot clearer to me, thank you.

I've been following this for a bit, and my understanding is that nobody is making any claims that this model invalidates quantum theory. Rather, it calls into question the interpretation of it which has predominated for most of a century, and was certainly the main model when I was in school.
