Submission + - Physicists claim to have broken the speed of light

bain writes: "The Telegraph report that two German physicists; Dr Gunter Nimtz and Dr Alfons Stahlhofen of the University of Koblenz, claim to have broken the speed of light by 'conducting 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.' Since this goes against Einstein's special theory of relativity, you can expect a lot of people to dismiss this as rubbish."
