    That's what's got me worried. Geez, if we can't trust Einstein, who's gonna listen to lil' ol' me? :shut:

    So, in theory, the rays got there before they left.........all else being equal???

    Don't worry - Einstein was still mostly on target. It makes him even smarter when you think about it this way. He figured it out by looking out the window and thinking.....

    These researchers are taking the sum total of knowledge of mankind, many tens of billions of dollars, many years, the best equipment ever built, etc......and it will be a long time before they prove anything much.

    When you look at it that way, Albert was definitely the man!

    I said "in theory"...meaning they got there before the expected speed of the speed of light!

    It's a long way from there to a time warp......

    Anyone who can understand this:
    "is certainly smaller than that by three orders of magnitude, and compatible with zero."

    shouldn't be hanging out in a wood burning forum...

    if physicists would just accept that nothing can move faster than light, but, things can move through time, we'd have no worries. Darn block-headed rocket scientists.
