In a race, who would win: quantum tunneling or the reigning champ, the speed of light? Paradoxically, the most promising prospects for moving matter around faster than light may be to put a metaphorical brick wall in its way. New efforts in quantum tunneling – both theory and experiment – show that superluminal motion may […]
