Default "Faster Than The Speed of Light"

A BBC Production

"An international group of scientists at Cern made one of the most astonishing statements of this generation: that they had detected particles that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light. If they turn out to be right, that will mean Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is wrong and *travelling into the past or to a parallel universe might no longer be confined to the likes of Doctor Who. In this programme, Professor Marcus du Sautoy tries to explain to us non-boffins what it's all about and why it matters. Of course, there's always the possibility the scientists have just got it wrong."

Default Faster than the speed of light.....

I can't wait to view the BBC video. I came across the following link that claims there was an error in the measurements......http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0316204743.htm.

And then there was this........

Default Article about something moving faster than the speed of light

I can't locate the article, but I'm certain it was on the web site for "Science Daily". An unusual optic fiber was used and the photon left the opposite end of the fiber before the photon was emitted. Again, there is a strong possibility that this experiement was flawed by faulty measurement. But then I just located the following link: http://skullsinthestars.com/2011/10/...er-than-light/. Evidently, the author of this link states that in fact the experiment I was referring to was flawed.

I think people are so bent on proving that there is a speed greater than the speed of light, that they may be wasting resources. However, the following link writes about atoms that communicate faster than light: http://www.lifesci.sussex.ac.uk/home...in/quantum.htm.

There is so much information and claims on the Internet, I could keep this discussion going on for a long time.

It's quite possible that the experiment was flawed. But what if the speed of light is the speed limit in only our dimension — assuming there are other dimensions?

Incidentally, have you seen the movies I posted (also by the BBC) that covers black holes?

I haven't viewed the video on black hole, but I will.

These videos seemed to be saying exactly what people have recently concluded without being too rude. They were really quite good.
