Physicists extend special relativity beyond the speed of light

Physicists extend special relativity beyond the speed of light | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

QMP's curator insight, April 29, 2013 2:53 PM

A great topic to discuss with the more curious children, and very relevant to The Dark Emperor. However, this explanation would go way over their heads, so it would be best for a teacher to tackle this first, then put it in more simpler terms for the students. I have confidence that children can understand why it is dark at night, it is simply a matter of phrasing it that is understandable for them!
