Hurtigere end lysets hastighed..

Den nu afdøde Douglas Adams bragte mange guldkorn til verdenen, men en af mine favoritter var nu følgende:(citat "Mostly Harmless"):
"One of the problems has to do with the speed of light and the difficulties involved in trying to exceed it. You can't. Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws. The Hingefreel people of Arkintoofle Minor did try to build spaceships that were powered by bad news but they didn't work particularly well and were so extremely unwelcome whenever they arrived anywhere that there wasn't really any point in being there. "

Og nu viser det sig så at lysets hastighed nu godt kan overgås - af kommunikation. Og mon ikke det kun gælder for de dårlige nyheder :)
