CERN: 'Speed of Light Exceeded' (Maybe) – Physics World Excited, but Skeptical

The news from CERN physicists that the speed of light “may have been exceeded” sent a lightning bolt of excitement and disbelief (not quite surpassing the speed of light) through the world’s physics community. Fully accepting that their results would be met with great skepticism, the same physicists are inviting other particle physicists and labs to verify — or disprove — their results, which, if validated, will overturn one of the principle tenets of modern physics: that nothing travels faster than the speed of ligh

NASA Confirms Einstein's Theory in 'Epic' Space-Time Experiment [VIDEO]

It was a truly “epic” mission; after nearly 47 years of planning, operating, monitoring and analyzing the data from a special satellite-probe known as Gravity Probe B (GP-B), NASA scientists are announcing definitive confirmation of Einstein’s famous theoretical prediction of the “warping” of space around the Earth due to its orbit and spinning motion through ‘space-time’.
