Way to prevent view from being destroyed?

Take the followign codepen for example, which is basically the same as the defualt ion-nav-view codepen with loaded/unloaded events being logged. http://codepen.io/djett41/pen/YPvgeN

Is there a way to be able to navigate from Home -> Scientific Facts -> More facts -> Back button back to Scientific Facts -> Back button back to Home

without a single view being destroyed?
