What is this new theory about?

In simple layman's terms, what exactly is this new theory about Schrödinger's cat about?

I tried to read many news articles about it, but I still do not understand it.

What exactly are they trying to say? Thanks in advance.

    What "new theory" are you referring to?

    Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment meant to illustrate (and cast doubt on) the "Copenhagen interpretation" in quantum mechanics.  It's not a theory.  Nor is it an observation that prompted a theory.
