“The universe seems to like talking to itself faster than the speed of light,” said Steinberg. “I could understand a universe where nothing can go faster than light, but a universe where the internal workings operate faster than light, and yet we’re forbidden from ever making use of that at the macroscopic level — it’s very hard to understand.”
Faster than light particles found, claim scientists
Particle physicists detect neutrinos travelling faster than light, a feat forbidden by Einstein's theory of special relativity http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/sep/22/faster-than-light-particles-neutrinos?newsfeed=true
Scientists don’t fully understand quantum entanglement—but they know that space, or physical distance, is not a factor in the “communication” between two entangled particles. If one is affected by a force or a measurement, the other also reacts in the same moment, even if they are separated by leagues. Unlocking the secrets of this phenomenon could lead to incredible advancements in technology, such as quantum machines that transmit information faster than light.
Scientists officially announced Friday (Sept. 23) that subatomic particles called neutrinos may be passing the ultimate speed limit, zooming at a velocity faster than light. But according to Einstein's special theory of relativity, nothing can cross this barrier. So either the measurements are incorrect, or physicists must revise many trusted theories. Here are 10 that would be affected.
JUMPING IN FOLDED SPACE - The red ship in conventional 3D space, the green ship takes a shortcut through the fourth dimension taking advantage of the fold - often limits movement to specific JUMP POINTS - From manga The Ideon - The Motion Picture - Faster Than Light - Atomic Rockets - "jump" FTL is a sort of rabbit hole. Navigation is done beforehand, in normal Space. Once you make it you have no further control till you pop back out, hopefully where you wanted to go.
Einstein Was Right All Along: 'Faster Than Light' Neutrino Was Result of Error
(22/2/2012) Einstein Was Right All Along: ‘Faster-Than-Light’ Neutrino Was Product of Error http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/02/22/einstein-was-right-all-along-faster-than-light-neutrino-was-product-of-error/ A discovery that could have upended a century of physics research was caused by a loose cable. Phew.
