Default What is more faster than light?

A groundbreaking discovery yet to be proved true
Faster Than Light Particles Discovered By European Scientists?

When I was in 3rd grade I thought the answer to this question would have been myself, as for my curiousity being proved right when I turned on the switch in one end of the room and ran to the other end, only to see that I had reached there before the tubelight was fully bright.

Yet to be completely proven, but intriguing nonetheless.

I read about this a few months ago. Here
It certainly has the potential to rewrite the accepted theories of physics. There is also the possibility of proving the existence of the so called 'God particle'
Quote:
British physicist Peter Higgs theorized its existence more than 40 years ago to explain why atoms have weight.
I'm thinking we are on the precipice of making discoveries that may dramatically benefit mankind or possibly cause our demise.

Even, if this was true, probably it was because of the cummulative reactions, particles striking onto each other increasing their speed exponentially and not in vacuum where there are no other particles to collide or other protons to increase it's net speed.

I saw the news about "Particles faster than light found" on TV first before I found it in the website.

The speed of light is not a constant anyway.

Near Black Holes or massive bodies light slows down.


I'm more worried about the speed of dark anyway,
turn out the light and see how fast you stub your toe.

It's a fact. And... (am I the "bad news guy"? ) get disappointed again.

The speed of light is a constantly. What slows down is time.
