Making Light Travel Faster

As we discussed in a previous post on nature and shape of time, the speed of light in vacuum is a constant (c = 299792458 m/s) . But in different materials (like glass) the speed of light can be less. Scientists have now developed a new nanoscale device which makes light appear travelling infinitely faster. This makes light appear all throughout the material at the same time and glow. Read more about this at sciencemag.
