+ - "We have broken the speed of light"

jas_public (1049030) 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."

"The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was." -- Walt West
