I have always thought the key to special relativity was "accelerate faster than the speed of light" with the key word being "accelerate", what if we could "jump" to those speeds?
I think the ability to travel at supraluminal speeds is in the ability to jump from one level into another. What these or this level is I have no idea, is it the space between universes, a sub-space of our universe, the ability to create micro-black holes for worm holes, or another universe where supraluminal travel is allowed?
Of course this is just my mind running wild.

I don't THINK it's an April fool's joke, as this actually occurred (neutrinos measured at upward of the speed of light), but it turned out to be simply an equipment malfunction.

The discovery was over 6 years ago, and they found the malfunction shortly after. This article is full of links to April Fools memes.

You're dealing with quanta, so quantum tunnelling could obscure the results by 60 nano seconds.

I hate that science blogs participate in April Fools Day. That’s how false information spreads like wildfire.

Whew

the date on the link is 4/1/2018. But i did see the older news reports. This is a sophisticated ruse.

Umm... blog date is April 1. Joke? Yes, all the links in the article are to a The Simpsons gif.
