An interesting story from Germany today: Two physicists there believe they’ve broken the speed of light. The duo believe that microwave particles of light appeared simultaneously in two separate places three feet apart.

More revelations in the Taum Sauk Reservoir collapse today: A supervisor admitted that he hadn’t checked the emergency water sensors even after the water overtopped the dam three months before the collapse.
