I'm not going to claim that I understand the mathematics behind it, but the eggheads behind the discovery the Higgs Boson say that faster-than-light travel would be possible simply by "turning off" the mass of an object.
The potential discovery of the Higgs boson is a gateway to a new era that could see humanity unlock some of the universe's great mysteries, including dark matter and light-speed travel, scientists have claimed.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) unveiled data from the Large Hadron Collider Wednesday "consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson," an elusive particle thought to help explain why matter has mass.
Scientists went into a frenzy following the announcement, speculating that it could one day make light-speed travel possible by "un-massing" objects or allow huge items to be launched into space by "switching off" the Higgs.
