The tachyon has a spin of 0, does any other particle have a spin of 0?
Any scalar field particle, like the Higgs, has spin zero. Of course, we've not observed one (yet) so these are hypothetical particles.
The tachyon has a spin of 0
This I think refers to the tachyon "problem" in string theories, which is the lowest angular momentum particle along the trajectory (so is probably a scalar ).I have trouble with this. First, nobody has seen a tachyon. Second, a spin-1/2 or spin-1 tachyon is no more and no less likely than a spin-0 tachyon.

Ack. Yes. Stupid questions. Tachyons break Lorentz invariance anyway.
