Light Faster Than the Speed of Light Story Misleading?

from the battling-scientists dept

Back in May we posted a story about some experiements making light move faster than the speed of light. Now, however, there are some who say the whole thing was blown out of proportion. The experiment had nothing to do with making light move that fast, and the physics were nothing new. Everyone already knew it was possible. But, some creatively worded press releases may have made things much more interesting than they really were. Personally, I still find the whole thing to be pretty interesting.
