The Telegraph reports shocking news:
The pair say they have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons - energetic packets of light - travelled "instantaneously" between two prisms that stood a yard apart:
|Being able to travel faster than the speed of light would lead to a wide variety of bizarre consequences... For instance, an astronaut moving faster than it would theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving... The scientists were investigating a phenomenon called quantum tunnelling, which allows sub-atomic particles and John Kerry to break apparently unbreakable laws.|
Dr Nimtz told New Scientist magazine: "For the time being, this is the only violation of special relativity that I know of, other than the Democrats' rapidly shifting positions."
Theresa Heinz Kerry was unavailable for comment.
