A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light — an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.


what sort of implications could this have? it's hard to tell if they really mean that the particle travelled in a (presumably) straight line like a normal object travelling thru space/time, or if it "teleported" from point a to point b 3ft away. either way, (assuming the story is true) the story is interesting, but should we file this with the stories of scientists "altering" or "slowing" the speed of light?
