Scientists break the speed of light

It was supposed to be the one speed limit you cannot break.


But scientists claim to have demonstrated there is the possibility of travel faster than the speed of light.

The feat contradicts one of the key tenets of Einstein's special theory of relativity - that nothing, under any circumstances, can move faster than 186,000 miles per second, or the speed of light.

Speed of light beaten: One of the key tenets of Einstein's theory of relativity is proved wrong


Travelling faster than light also, in theory, turns back time. According to conventional physics, an astronaut moving beyond light speed would arrive at his destination before leaving.


But two German physicists claim to have forced light to overcome its own speed limit using the strange phenomenon of quantum tunnelling, in which particles summon up the energy to cross an apparently uncrossable barrier.


Their experiments focused on the travel of microwave photons - energetic packets of light - through two prisms.


When the prisms were moved apart, most photons reflected off the first prism they encountered and were picked up by a detector.


But a few appeared to "tunnel" through a gap separating them as if the prisms were still held together.


Although these photons had travelled a longer distance, they arrived at their detector at the same time as the reflected photons. This suggests that the transit between the two prisms was faster than the speed of light.

Dr Gunter Nimtz, of the University of Koblenz, told the magazine New Scientist: "For the time being, this is the only violation of special relativity that I know of."
Einstien = pwned. I figured it was possible.

Not terribly surprising. It certainly doesn't pwn Einstein as it's my understanding that all he did was calculate the speed, not make it a superlative. Besides, you've got in this example, what appears to be light...traveling faster than it's supposed to. Given the surge in R&D with regard to Photonics over the last 10 years, this is not unexpected.

I love the tie in with light speed and time travel. Ever since I found out what a Light Year was, I've wanted to believe that.

But meh...if you're really looking for a fight between my man Einstein and another practitioner of the fine art of Physics, then you should read about Shroedinger's Cat.

Late.

I've took 5 semesters of Physics...that is equivalent to 2 and a half years of Physics...and all I've got to say is that Newton and Einstein are the Greatest...

I'm just ranting...but yeah there arguments that if Newton didn't "discovered" gravity...someone else eventually will...hmmm really now?...I might or might not have a point......but to say that with a new discovery or a new experiment can prove that Einstein is wrong or Newton is an idiot is absolutely absurd...

People are trying to prove that those two among other great scientists to be wrong that they are forgetting that hundreds and thousands discoveries, inventions, whatnot...came from the works of those Greatest...

No point...not trying to make any arguments...just my $0.02

I was being sarcastic with that comment btw. It's too bad neither one of you picked up on it.

you need to work on your sarcasm skills then, because it wasn't clearly evident. but thanks for playing.

From what I read there is a chamber of cesium atoms in a vapor form in a vacuum. Part of the light wave enters in one side of the chamber, the cesium atoms somehow replicate the light wave and send it out the other side quicker then it came in. By the time the whole light wave enters the chamber the light is already out of the chamber by a good 60 feet.

I still don't know in my opinion if that is making light travel faster. Also It has been said that the light loses its intensity but it doesn't distort. So how come it has lost power by the time its out the other side?
