Sit down Captain Kirk!!

Hi Gang,
This news item is a rather dissappointing one for me as I have, of late, been dreaming of zooming amongst the stars! Not me of course but some future generation. It seems that the 60 nanosecond discrepancy (the faster than light moment) has been put down to a fault in a fibre optic cable junction. I guess I will have to junk my fantasy of Star Trek becoming fact at any point in time soon. Read the news release for yourself here http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2012/02/breaking-news-error-undoes-faster.html

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
