I've worked with what's called "fast electronics" in the past. The equipment these guys are using must be very carefully calibrated. The *length of the cables* connecting components comes into play. I think it's more likely that these guys just had a short cable somewhere. I'd wait until it's been independently verified a few times before rewriting all the physics books in the world....

As exciting as the possibility is. This is the proper way of looking at it.

So it turned out to be a bad connection to a GPS receiver. Why was a GPS receiver even in there? This is in direct violation of the KISS principle! :p

edit: Also, sorry for raising a zombie thread, but I thought in this case it would be appropriate.

Ceases to amaze me that people are that arrogant to not want to prove them wrong. Science is usually about observation and what we observe so if that is alas true how can we know for certain. I for one am glad they proved that wrong. Small numbers or not it was still proven wrong.
