Question Faster-Than-Light Radio Waves Claimed Discovered

A scientist from the Los Alamos National Laboratory has reportedly discovered radio waves that travel faster than the speed of light -- an would-be violation of Einsteinian physics.

Subspace radio?

See: http://blogs.discovery.com/space_dis...-unicorns.html

And what's the deal with moving laser dots across the face of the Moon?

I've heard of apparent FTL phenomena before, but is the genuine article being claimed here?

This looks very suspicious to me. I've read silly stories before.

I hate to say it, but yeah... it sounds like gobbledygook to me.

Apparently this is an example of old news rehashed as new news. Upon further inquiry, I found that this news can be traced back to a January, 2008 article in a local newspaper. Since, going by reports, evidently nothing has come of it in more than 18 months, I think we can safely say that we can all be skeptics here.

I also think that the writer who said that it's a question of phase packets' going faster than light is probably on the right track.
