    Admittedly the cynic in me assumes that they're lying or made a mistake or something.

    Is this one of those things where the group velocity exceeds c but the front velocity doesn't? Cos that's not very new, and you can't transmit information faster than c with that, so it doesn't rape GR. The article is tiny

    The idea isn't to go faster than everyone else, it's to go slower than everyone else.

    What you have to do is slow to Warp -10 maaan.

    I thought that when you're using tunneling it is the phase velocity that exceeds c.

    teefs, if 'one of your dreams' is some german scientists breaking the speed of light

    you're kinda weird.

    shouldn't you be wanting a pony or something at your age?

    or like, a pretty castle?

    i didn't see enough evidence in the article to explain the conclusion, and one experiment isn't enough to prove anything

    this means nothing until a scholarly peer reviewed article is published

    this is ground breaking, if true, but it seems too simple

    so we need two prisms

    move these prisms apart, and throw one to, say, your work place

    now what you do is jump into the prism

    repeat until you successfully end up at the other side

    it is like jumping into a tunnel, believe me here

    I believe that shit like this happens every few years.

    I remember several years back, some dudes at Princeton were sure that they could achieve superluminal speeds by firing laser pulses through a cloud of cesium.

    I'm not saying that it will never be done, or that it can't. I'm no physicist. I'm just saying that the smart money's on waiting until all the data are in.
