Biologist Trying to do Physics -- Badly So, I just saw this article on PhysOrg that PF was linking to, and it has me saying, "HUH?" http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-11-relativity-electrons-biologist.html This biologist thinks he has discovered why electrons can't travel faster than the speed of light, and claims it has to do with some sort of "photon drag force." We already KNOW from Special Relativity why no massive particle can travel faster than c -- it is NOT an open question. Furthermore, we know that this would be true of that massive particle even if it were travelling in a true vacuum absent of photons or any other particles. And this guy is planning to publish these "findings?!" What the heck? I should also add that the article's description of the "canonical" explanation for why massive particles can't travel faster than light as having to do with the "relativity of time" is at best vague and at worst dead wrong.
