    lol, it is nothing new that quantum particles can "exceed" the speed of light, since they could have an infinite 'speed', but well as long as you can't controll it. Nobody ever said that quantum theory goes well with the theory of relativity.
    (If you know the impulse of a quantum particle then it has an equal chance for each possible location at the next moment which would be equal to moving more than the speed of light, at least if it moved more than 300km)

    Under a rock, behind a tree, just outside the road, moving at low speed.

    Relativity is an obsolete theory, if you dig enough you will find information about how Einstein disprobed his own Theory of Relativity when he tried to Thrash the quantum mechanics theories.

    I could look for it, but you won't learn anything If I do

    Light is not the Limmit, just remenber that

    We can also take up one other thing this would imply. The faster an object moves, the slower time passes for that object. This would mean traveling into the future (and no, that's not a joke)
    1 Really? I thought at the speed of light you wouldn't see anything since you're moving so fast light from something behind you wouldn't even be able to reach your eyes

    2 We know its not a joke. Theres evidence that astronauts are younger than they're supposed to be (by minutes or so) because of the speed they travel just to stay in orbit.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I barly grasped what's being said here, but woulden't an object moving at the speed of sound catch flame or disintagrate or something from the friction between it and the air. Further more on that whole astronaut getting there before it left thing, wouldn't the astronaut just run out of air because he can't breathe in the air as it's being left behind him...

    Just some thoughts I had...

    Speed of sound isn't whats being talked about and there isn't anything in space so no burning up or disentigrating. And i guess that if anyone was going to be able to travel at or faster then speed of light i don't see why he wouldn't wear a space suit or an be in a vehicle of some sort which would make the air move as fast as him so no pressure or whatever that may cause to have breathing difficulties.


    It doesnt matter if the he can see himself preparing to get to the destinatation after reaching the destination . It doesnt mean that he got there before starting. If that were true then the entire world as it is now was created at the birth of the universe beacuse we can see it in the farthest reaches of the universe

    1. That is true. The light showing you standing would collide with you as you moved forward, leaving a darkness behind you, but when you stop you will see yourself standing there for the time difference between your travel and the normal speed of light. It's kind of fucked up really.

    2. Thank god... Nobody of my buddies believe me if I don't show them evidence or such.

    Raptor Jesus could do it.

    Indeed he could.

    This is a really cool discovery. Hopefully they can implement it on a larger scale.

    Until there is the math behind it its just a news article to me.

    That article was awfully vague...

    But the prospects of even achieving that speed is very exciting. I look forward to seeing the results of their experiments.
