Lab Kit Breaks Speed of Light

"Electric signals can be transmitted at least four times faster than the speed of light using only basic equipment that would be found in virtually any college science department.

"Scientists have sent light signals at faster-than-light speeds over the distances of a few metres for the last two decades - but only with the aid of complicated, expensive equipment. Now physicists at Middle Tennessee State University have broken that speed limit over distances of nearly 120 metres, using off-the-shelf equipment costing just $500." [more]
