The speed of light is the cosmic speed limit and it can’t been changed. Or can it?
Theory that challenges Einstein’s physics could soon be put to the test
“Scientists behind a theory that the speed of light is variable – and not constant as Einstein suggested – have made a prediction that could be tested. Einstein observed that the speed of light remains the same in any situation, and this meant that space and time could be different in different situations.”
Putting the Brakes on Light
“The atoms, now one big atom, act in unison. They are analogous to the photons in a laser, all lined up the same way, producing what physicists call a coherent beam of light. On the quantum mechanical level, atoms have dual personalities, just like photons of light.”
What is the Inflation Theory?
“The Inflation Theory proposes a period of extremely rapid (exponential) expansion of the universe during its first few moments. It was developed around 1980 to explain several puzzles with the standard Big Bang theory, in which the universe expands relatively gradually throughout its history.”
