A pair of German physicists are claiming they’ve broken the speed of light. Maybe they’ve never heard of a gentleman with crazy white hair and his theory of relativity, which states that you’d need an unlimited amount of energy to thrust an object at 186k+ miles per second. Well, the physicists say they’ve conducted an experiment where microwave photons have instantaneously traveled from one prism to another that’s 3 feet away.
This is some crazy Back To The Future-type business. Imagine arriving at your destination before you even leave and seeing your past self and creating some gnarly rift in the fabric of time. Whoa.
