Scientists are interested in what happens in those areas where special relativity might break down, or transform into quantum time scales. CNN pursues this angle in this brief article (http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/space/06/04/einstein.wrong/index.html).

(My prediction is that if the clocks are off, the people on that project will say "Hmmm, interesting. Nature is sure mysterious..." and want to find out more, and the crackpots will shout "Ah ha! Einstein wrong. "My Dingbat Theory of the Universe" (without observation or math,) is the only TRUE way".) But that's expected I guess. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Hey Chip,

This article is being discussed over in the CNN and Relativity (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?topic=1412&forum=4&6) thread on the No Doughnut Forum.

Oops, I'd better mosey on over there. Thanks.
