Faster than the speed of light.

It's looking like something may actually be able to travel faster than the speed of light.

I hope to God that these claims are true... If for no other reason, than to show just how stupid humans really are. For a skeptic of everything such as myself, it's always nice to see a pillar of the scientific community potentially being torn down.

So 730/(730/299792-60*10E-9)=299865.9km/s or 0.02% faster than the speed of light. Not really that much.

Not being able to find the Higgs Boson seems to be the more significant development.

so let me get this straight: are you suggesting that disproving Eistein, regardless of by how much, and potentially needing to re-write every physics text book, is not as big of a deal as not being able to find something that has been theoretical from the get go?
