The result is an expression that looks like Heisenberg's original relation, but gives the exact uncertainty in the measurements of position and momentum.
Lemme see now ... I'm no QM man, but I guess this means that we used to be uncertain about how much uncertainty there was in such matters. Now we are less so. The article makes it sound as if we are far less so. This sounds like a significant improvement. But QM is definitely outside the range of my conversational topics.
We used to know that we didn't know and we knew how much we didn't know. Now we know by how much we don't know that we don't know. Y'know.

This is clearly a topic within the domain of "Plato the Platypus"....... [creating yet another posting opportunity for the jpg image of "Plato," the fuzzy, furry, and maniacal monotreme.]
