Submission + - Speed of light exceeded by German physicists? (telegraph.co.uk)

Tibore Escalante writes: Two physicists in Germany claim that they've exceeded "c":

"'We have broken speed of light'"; Telegraph.co.uk

Quote: "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.

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