In case you missed it, in November, io9 reported that physicist Harold White was working on the concept for an engine that could transport a ship through space at warp speeds without violating Einstein’s law of relativity.
Remember the announcement that shocked the physics world last September? Scientists claimed to have measured a neutrino traveling faster than the speed of light—a feat that would have undone Einstein, if, that is, the measurement proves not to have been the result of a bad connection between a GPS unit and a computer, as researchers now suspect.
It’s not often that we pose questions like this to you, honored readers, and to be frank, we can’t answer this one. However, some really smart physicists and their state-of-the-art machines are exploring the issue, and from the look of it this baffling notion might just be true.
