Does observation collapse the wave function, thus preventing an object from tunneling to a classically forbidden region?
If I understand correctly, observation causes objects to collapse into the state in which they were observed, so there will no longer be a probability of finding them elsewhere. Then if I am somehow measuring the position of an object, does that mean it can't tunnel as long as I continue to observe it? For example, can my hand tunnel to the moon, even though I am looking at it right now, thus measuring its position? How does measurement affect the possibility of tunneling?
