Geek stuff, sci-fi... Today, the new Star Trek film has seen its official premiere here in The Netherlands tonight, and in honour of that, I figured an article on Space.com about the possibility of faster-than-light travel would make a good fit on OSNews. The article is quite technical, so bear with me on this one. I hope I get everything right.

the speed of light in a vacuum is a constant.

light travelling through other materials (such as water) goes slower, allowing other particles that aren't slowed - neutrinos, i think don't slow in water - to go 'faster than light', at least for a time.
