Yep,

Just a sensational article title.

There's no new physics here. Here is a video of an ice skater changing shape[^]. Video makes it easy to understand conservation of angular momentum. The experiment in the article confirms the existing prediction that changing shape (and angular momentum) in curved space can be used for locomotion.

It's the experimental setup and accurate measurements that's really a breakthrough. The setup they are using to make these measurements reminds me of the old Foucault gyroscope[^].
