Light before Quantum Theory
Particles fasters that the Light?
First we are going to give some general considerations about the theory of relativity, which was developed by Albert Einstein.
Einstein said that the behaviour of matter at velocities near to the velocity of Light is different, because the distances are shorter, the times are bigger and the matter approaches to the infinite.
According to the relativity theory:
Letís discuss the last point.† Einstein considered the last point to be fundamental to the theory of relativity.† Recently, a discovery was made that could change the entire theory of relativity.† This discovery was that electromagnetic waves can obtain a velocity greater than that of Light.† Now the question remains, What is the effect of this?† Does this find destroy the theory of relativity?† There havenít been very many studies on this yet, and there isnít much information available, so we still donít know.† The Institute that had made this discovery is a University of California..
