In Topic: Scientists Slow Down Speed of Light

Never underestimate people.

Despite the glaring obviousness of human stupidity, which is made far more accessible by the internet, we are getting smarter and smarter as a race.

I think more people would understand high end science, at least in principle, than you would believe.

While they may understand the basic principle of "speed of light slowed," they probably don't understand the implications like a person with a degree in astrophysics would.


It sounds cool and all, but it's outside my wheelhouse (and most people's wheelhouse.)  I'll leave it to somebody with more understanding of the topic to explain it to me.

I think he knows exactly why it isn't headlining world news.

It comes off as more of a "I am annoyed that amazing scientific progression isn't celebrated by everyone worldwide".

Most people don't really understand it. Most people, if we're honest, when told about it will go "Hey, that's kind of cool."


The media is filled with people who don't understand much of science or economics. We don't need them giving Facepalm-worthy analysis of another thing they don't understand.


The implications of this are pretty amazing. But most people don't follow news nearly as closely as many of us here.

International front page news is based on what sells paper. This is important but not "BREAKING NEWS!!!" in the same context as the fall of the Yemeni government, which also happened this week.
