Einstein Still Right After All These Years

The speed of light is theorized to be the Universe's ultimate speed limit and Albert Einstein seminal theory of special relativity - depends on the idea that nothing can exceed it.

Cern, the world's largest physics lab reported tests that suggested light speed can be exceeded in tests run recently.

"We tried to find all possible explanations for this," Dr. Antonio Ereditato of the Opera Collaboration said.  "We wanted to find a mistake - trivial mistakes, more complicated mistakes, or nasty effects - and we didn't", he added.

Antonio has egg plasma on his face today.  CERN reports that the entire thing was the result of a loose cable.  Test Void!  Ooops. Nevermind.
