Speed of Light Broken!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1965

This is so fucking cool. I'm no physicist but this is awesome news. Now that light speed has been broken in an experiment this opens up a lot of new possibilities... dont ask me what kind... I dont know... maybe WARP SPEED! And then Ludicrous Speed...

photon entanglement theory behind it is quite old some guys at some yank uni were working on this too dont think they ever succeeded though.

just a pity its not really traveling at the speed of light as most people understand it more of making a quantum clone. (actually think of it more as a transporter than speed of light travel)

i don't know if this is really star trek. He was mentioning transporter and that is deffinately star trek but then there is another theory contradicting this:

warp speed = star trek

light speed = star wars

so it might be about star wars after all...

It's shape-shifting! (the trough of a wave becomes a peak in a different medium?)
I like the Michelson-Morley (sp) experiment where they spin a mirror and the speed of light is the same going in the direction of the earth's spin or against it.
That one I can understand.
I am still blown away that orbiting astronaut's wristwatches run measurably slower.

my personal favorite is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger's_cat
sometimes I wish I'd gone into research after finishing the degree but then i realize i get paid more now than i ever could in research

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_tunneling
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement
this is more related to the article in question above

Old news :)

Once they can portal me to the maledives and back for lunch using power from cold fusion i will start looking again.

Then ofc i would also just always travel back in time to my last holidays and whenever they finished travel back again and again and again ... the question is , will the hotel notice when there are 400 incarnations of me eating their buffet ? Or would there always be 1 me ? And then where are all the other incarnations of me ? Also would i always see the same fish when scuba diving ? And would the fish notice the difference between the various incarnations of me ? Questions Questions ...

What we all need is a transporter like they have in Star Trek... then we can go where and when we please... Lunch in Tokyo... sure if you want to wake up at Midnight... but you can still go.
