Once again the universe stubbornly refuses to cooperate with science fiction. I am disconsolate.

Yeah. Bummer. Although I've been expecting that. There may be "a way around" the light speed limit though some new physics we haven't yet discovered, but IMHO nobody is going to find a significant error in Einstein's work. D*mn.

I'd heard about the wiring problem in the earlier experiment but had not heard about the followup. I agree that the new result is discouraging though expected. I still hope for a breakthrough of some kind that gives us FTL, but it's only a hope.
