Is the Uncertainty Principle being proved wrong?

No, not really, but higher resolution technology has enabled researchers to employ a pretty effective “work around.” According to the article in the 09-07-12 Science Daily (www.sciencedaily.com), more and more folks are finding that if they use a bunch of what they call “weak measurements” they can get a pretty good idea of where a particle has been as it’s shifting from one position to another in space-time.

It’s kind of like taking a bunch of photographs of some people running and then going back through them and figuring out where their feet were at a given moment.

This isn’t the same as being able to determine with certainty where a moving particle is—which is what Heisenberg said is impossible, but it does allow physicists to figure out what a particle may have done in response to they’ve done to it—and that’s all they’re really trying to do.
