We have broken speed of light

A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light - an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.

Now you see it. Now you don't.

That seems to be an awfully small article about something so big, no?

But I think I read about the fact that quantum pairing does the same sort of thing regardless of distance. Something like one quark spins one way and it's pair spins the opposite way, and they had separated the two by miles and but the changes to spin were noted on the opposite pair instantly?

Hmm. Wikipedia here I come...

You could be right, but I although think that as with most experiments in the scientific community, until it has been validated and reproduced, everybody is a skeptic.
