    Default Einstein, proven wrong?

    Would be pretty interesting if this was true...

    yeah... @_@ at the ideas and possibilities of the results of breaking the laws of physics... >.<

    The results hardly "break" the laws of physics, they just mean that we must refine our theories to explain the new phenomena.

    Anyway, quantum mechanics is funky shit.

    Ditto to what Saizou said. Einstien is the genius of times past. Its about time for someone to come along with newer better ideas that disprove those of the past.


    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

    Agree SD, something like this always makes my stomach go wild:

    For instance, an astronaut moving faster than light would theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving.
    This statement is so wrong, every child could tell you.

    Its the same idea as, "when you move against the spin of the earth you travel back in time".
    Just wrong, so wrong...

    Not really. You would see yourself still standing in the original spot when you look back over your shoulder.

    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)

    Hey, you leave "Comic book science" out of this. If Superman wants to turn back time he can. His mother said he could.

    lol, Don't think those germans have solved anything..how can they find something traveling faster then the speed of light when it does not exist..
    But the things they talk about..aint that still just a theory..?

    Einstein never said that c cannot be exceeded, that was just one of the principles that must be assumed to be true for general and special relativity to be true. And this definitely is the case almost all the time. Just like Newtonian mechanics is adequate most of the time on Earth.

    I would wait to see whether this is true and how it can be implemented though, apparently these guys have also made similar claims in the past.
