Faster than the Speed of Light - Could the Laws of Physics Change?
The laws of physics are usually meant to be set in stone; variability is not usually part of physics. Yet contradicting Einstein's tenet of the constancy of the speed of light raises nothing less than that possibility. Joao Magueijo, Professor of Physics at Imperial College London, will discuss some of the more dramatic implications of a varying speed of light.

|Faster than the Speed of Light?
In September 2011, an international group of scientists has made an astonishing claim - they have detected particles that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light. It was a claim that contradicted more than a hundred years of scientific orthodoxy.

|Special Relativity and Electrodynamics
In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws of relativity to all laws of physics, even electrodynamics.
