Scientists Claim To Break Speed-of-Light Barrier

If zooming beyond the local speed limit is punishable by law, then some scientists may have a gargantuan speeding ticket to pay.

In a controversial experiment reported in this weeks journal Nature, scientists at the NEC Research Institute in Princeton, New Jersey claim to have broken the ultimate speed limit -- the speed of light. Though hotly contested, some say this achievement could dramatically increase the speeds at which we can send and receive information.

Apparently, this is the "trick." You just get light to stop moving in a wave and it moves in a straighter line, thus reaching it's destination faster.
