Scientists at CERN claim they have broken the speed of light. Other scientists around the world are currently double-checking the results. If it's true, this is some very serious shit indeed.


edit:translation for ESR == can lower your ping! :p

EDIT2: ok, I was digging up my old books and thought this through all over again. After I realized again (I do every time I think about the theory of relativity) that Einsten was the biggest genius ever, I'm also pretty certain they fucked up something, because there is no way that anything could go faster than c, period.

EDIT3: still thinking about this: is it possible that c simply != the speed of light? That would mean special relativity still holds right?
