German Scientists : "We Have Broken The Speed Of Light"

Albert Einstein : "Bullshit"

German physicists are claiming they have broken the speed of light :

A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light - an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.

According to Einstein's special theory of relativity, it would require an infinite amount of energy to propel an object at more than 186,000 miles per second.

However, Dr Gunter Nimtz and Dr Alfons Stahlhofen, of the University of Koblenz, say they may have breached a key tenet of that theory.

The pair say they have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons - energetic packets of light - travelled "instantaneously" between a pair of prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart.

The scientists were investigating a phenomenon called quantum tunnelling, which allows sub-atomic particles to break apparently unbreakable laws.

We eagerly await more news on this historic event, if it hasn't already torn apart our space-time continuum.

Does this supposed shattering of the laws of physics have anything to do with the devastation on world stock markets?

Some elements of quantum physics propose that breaking the speed of light is the first key step in making time travel for humans into a reality.

Theoretically, the moment the ability to travel in time becomes a reality, our time line should receive its first visitors from the future. Or one possible future. The moment time travel becomes a reality supposedly becomes the first moment in time that future time travelers would be able to return back to.

Well, that's one theory.

Whatever. As long as someone invents a way to allow us to arrive home from work before we leave, most of us will be happy.

Maybe John Titor was telling the truth after all.
