C'mon, did anyone really think Einstein was going to lose this one?

You are giving Einstein too much credit. He was merely one of the first individuals who had describe the natural phenomena known as relativity with a fairly consistent model. :)

The only winner here is physics itself. ;)

If only vargis14 had a time machine...

I also think these guys have checked all the possible explanations why it would not be over lightspeed before publishing any results. Otherwise they would become known as the "Ridiculous Speed" -guys in science circles. No-one would pour them a drink in parties (if any) of the scientists any more.

Dunno much about quantum science but I have read that a lot of things are completely different from Einsteinian science. I just hope that on quantum level things can be different and some sort of warp/FTL traveling would be possible.

I guess this would not make time travel possible in any way. I think for that to work you would need to backtrack every process in the universe and no amount of energy is enough for that. Just guessing also that Einsteins theory does not apply when going to FTL.
