Submission + - "We have broken the speed of light"

jas_public writes: 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.

The pair say they have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons — energetic packets of light — travelled "instantaneously" between a pair of prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart.

"People should have access to the data which you have about them. There should be a process for them to challenge any inaccuracies." -- Arthur Miller
