>>From New Scientist April 1, 1995, paraphrased:

>>'In March 1995 Gunther Nimtz of the University of Cologne
>>announced at a colloquium in Snowbird, Utah, that his team at
>>Cologne had not only measured superluminal speeds for their
>>microwaves, but had actually sent a signal faster than light. The
>>signal was Mozart's 40th Symphony. What they did was frequency
>>modulate their microwave source with the music and then measure
>>how quickly the music arrived after traversing the forbidden zone
>>in a waveguide.

>>According to Nimtz the 40th hopped 12 cm of space at 4.7 times
>>the speed of light. Nimtz had a recording to prove it.'

>>The New Scientist adds that skeptics are not sure that
>>Mozart's 40th is a real signal.

>Before you boys get too excited about this, eyeball the date again.
>And again.


I eyeballed the date months ago and I phoned the New Scientist
editors in London. The article was not an April Fools' joke.
Gunther Nimtz is a real person and has appeared in television

>Real scientists *like* a bit of wit occasionally.

Real scientists also do research. Btw this experiment validates
only one of a coterie of theories that indicate that speeds
faster than light are possible. The argument that ET visitation
is improbable because such speeds don't exist is obsolete even
according to present day human science. You would have found that
out had you read some real science magazines.
