I just read an article that was released 2 years ago about something that some of you may have heard about and maybe even posted threads about at some point but I have to throw this out there because I really want to learn more about it. Researchers from EPFL claim to have made light travel faster than normal using fiber optics. Here's a quote: "They were also able to create extreme conditions in which the light signal travelled faster than 300 million meters a second. And even though this seems to violate all sorts of cherished physical assumptions, Einstein needn't move over – relativity isn't called into question, because only a portion of the signal is affected." When I read the above all I could say was "What the...? Assumptions? A portion at c+ is OK?" I expect many to have a similar reaction to mine but someone out there just might be able to explain it. Please do. In the meantime here's the article: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2005-08/epfd-ltt081905.php I'm going to hunt for more info on this.
