Cool, maybe we will have FTL Spaceships yet.
One day you will find someone who is obsessed with you.

That's because they haven't got brain set to start when mouth engages. :biggrin:

Where's the part about "Defies All Logic"? I just watched ten minutes of collider blah blah and four google ads and learned nothing except my clothes could be brighter if I switch to Tide!

I know one thing that travels faster than light, my money at a grocery store!

How much faster than light are we talking? It is still irrelevant if the plan is to colonize other planets :-)

Pretty interesting. Certainly a big discovery if confirmed by peer review.

Too bad it's neutrino's tho as it essentially still means that "Matter as humans observe it" still can't travel faster than the speed of light. No FTL spaceships anytime soon.

Particle entanglement. What happens to one of a pair of conjoined particles effects the other particle regardless of distance, as in even on the other side of the visible universe.

So, an intelligent alien on the other side of the universe can turn you inside out :-)
Probably not true.

This reminded me of when Donald Trump was president of the US and was visiting the control room of one of the Mars landers just before it touched down. One of the controllers explained that commands to the space craft took about 15 minutes to reach Mars and therefore the space craft and lander had to have a degree of intelligence programmed into them to select a safe landing site. Trump thought a second and wondered if something could be done to speed up the commands being sent to the spacecraft and then it could be landed remotely, like in a computer game. The controllers sat there stunned for a few seconds glancing sideways at each other as Trump moved on.
