    What do you mean with "apparently there is something faster than the speed of light"? Do you refer to phase velocity, group velocity or what?

    This is not an acceptable form of "reference" for the physics forums:

    As has been alluded to, you are probably referring to the apparent superluminal neutrinos from the OPERA experiment. Do a search. You need to update your information because there's a correction to that.
