Yes, the reported MILLINEWTON thrust was surely the missing link to warp drive.

The discovery, if real, would have not gotten us warp speed. The parent posted said "relativistic" speed, which means close to c, but not higher than c. If this discovery were true, then that implication absolutely holds as we would then have a mechanism where we could gain speed without need for a propellant.

Good God.

I know this is /. and no one RTFA and all but seriously, at least try to search for key words like "Sim" or "City" before submitting an article with a moronic sensationalist headline like this.

His resignation has nothing to do with Sim City. Dream on.


+ - Scientists break the speed of light?->

pedramnavid (1069694) writes "...two German physicists claim to have forced light to overcome its own speed limit using the strange phenomenon of quantum tunnelling, in which particles summon up the energy to cross an apparently uncrossable barrier. Their experiments focused on the travel of microwave photons — energetic packets of light — through two prisms. When the prisms were moved apart, most photons reflected off the first prism they encountered and were picked up by a detector. But a few appeared to "tunnel" through a gap separating them as if the prisms were still held together. Although these photons had travelled a longer distance, they arrived at their detector at the same time as the reflected photons. This suggests that the transit between the two prisms was faster than the speed of light.

Dr Gunter Nimtz, of the University of Koblenz, told the magazine New Scientist: "For the time being, this is the only violation of special relativity that I know of.""

DigDuality (918867) writes "Microsoft, shrugging off licensing moves to prevent it from repeating its controversial patent deal with Novell, has signed a set of broad collaboration agreements with Linux provider Xandros that include an intellectual property assurance under which Microsoft will provide patent covenants for Xandros customers.

Will the response to Xandros be similar to that of Novell? We can only hope."
