Pilotwave theory strikes back

With few decades of delay the Pilotwave theory seems to be proven trues. A Team of physicists from Toronto, using the latest gentel probing techniques succeeded to prove the PilotWave theory in the double slit experiment.
From Quanta Magazine: New Support for Alternative Quantum View
An experiment claims to have invalidated a decadesold criticism against pilotwave theory, an alternative formulation of quantum mechanics that avoids the most baffling features of the subatomic universe.
Of the many counter intuitive features of quantum mechanics, perhaps the most challenging to our notions of common sense is that particles do not have locations until they are observed. This is exactly what the standard view of quantum mechanics, often called the Copenhagen interpretation, asks us to believe. Instead of the clearcut positions and movements of Newtonian physics, we have a cloud of probabilities described by a mathematical structure known as a wave function. The wave function, meanwhile, evolves over time, its evolution governed by precise rules codified in something called the Schrödinger equation. The mathematics are clear enough; the actual whereabouts of particles, less so. Until a particle is observed, an act that causes the wave function to “collapse,” we can say nothing about its location. Albert Einstein, among others, objected to this idea. As his biographer Abraham Pais wrote: “We often discussed his notions on objective reality. I recall that during one walk Einstein suddenly stopped, turned to me and asked whether I really believed that the moon exists only when I look at it.”
