Scientists are still trying to break the cosmic speed limit
that says that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, even if it means bending the laws of physics. While they don't yet know if WE can do it, there's evidence that PARTICLES can move faster than...

When a group of physicists who called themselves "Opera" announced in September that a group of subatomic particles called neutrinos had traveled faster
than the speed of light, many physicists assumed...

We may live in a holographic projection of another, flat version of life, being lived in a two-dimensional surface at the edge of this universe. Seeing our universe as a hologram could solve some of the biggest problems in quantum physics, such as "spooky action at a distance," also known as...

When researchers at CERN found neutrinos traveling at a speed faster than light
, they were excoriated by the scientific community, so in order to prove their results were real, they done an IMPROVED version of their experiment--and the result is the same. If confirmed by...

With the new movie Star Trek opening in theaters across the nation, one thing movie goers will undoubtedly see is the Starship Enterprise racing across the galaxy at the speed of light. But can traveling at warp speed ever become a reality? Scientists think it can.
Two physicists believe they have an idea that can turn traveling at the...

Two scientists have come up with a new method to cause a spaceship to effectively travel faster than the speed of light, without breaking the laws of physics. This means that spaceships that travel faster than light speed are possible, although at the moment, the amount of energy needed is greater than we can handle. If other civilizations have...

We may be able to travel to that newly discovered Earth-like planet sooner than we think, since a physicist thinks he has found a way to travel close to the speed of light.
Physorg.com reports that researcher Franklin Felber is making discoveries that will solve "the two greatest engineering challenges to near the speed of light:...
