However, anything outside a controlled environment can't go faster than light. Albert wasn't wrong about this:

E=m.c2

This was never published as hard fact by anyone.

There was widespread skepticism when the OPERA findings were first revealed, and even the leaders of the experiment insisted that they were not announcing a discovery but simply recording measurements they had made and carefully checked.
It made news because of the speculative results, however more testing is planned.

Other experiments are being prepared -- at Fermilab and at the KEK laboratory in Japan -- to try to replicate OPERA's findings. Only confirmation from one of these would open the way for a full scientific discovery to be declared.

I was referencing about nuclear reactor.

Light is the only thing that can be faster than light, even without moving. Several months ago an unexpected experiment ( trying to control data sending speed through fiber channel) something yet inexplicable happened: data never go through fiber channel but reach destination. Scientists begun to talk about negative light pulses , but it remains as a mystery.

Oh? So if time slows down what is the constant speed of time?
Speed implies motion, motion impiles something physical moving
through a demension. Is there a time particle or energy wave?
Time is an unit of measurement, much like a pound or a dozen.
It is also subjective from the observer's point of view, like beauty or
love or belief.

Photons comprise light, photons are a physical manifestation of energy.
Photons exist as near massless wave/particals.
But not massless enough not to be affected by other energy fields.
Photons have a constant speed in vacuum, but that speed has been
proven to change when passing through other media.

If light is the only thing that can be faster then light, then the speed of light
cannot by inference be constant. And "even without moving" is even more
confusing because by definition speed is distance traveled and time elapsed.

"Negative light pulses"? Interesting since photons are electrically neutral and are
one of the rare particles that are identical to their antiparticle, the antiphoton.

Don't misunderstood. When I say time slows down , I'm talking about the curving space. Of course time is only referential. Photon is a carrier particle for UV, gamma ray, x-ray, infrared, microwaves, radio waves. Photon speed is constantly also. And its invariable mass depends of observant position. But now we are here with a really problem you may remember: Newton formulates a theory based on stationary ... things (observer position dependently ) but we now the entire universe is dynamic ...
