Light goes backwards… faster than self?!

So, ya know how those wacky scientists have been slowing down light more and more over the past several years now? To the point where you could physically see the motion? And even to the point where it’s stopped?

Now, Robert Boyd, the M. Parker Givens Professor of Optics at the University of Rochester, has actually slowed time so fucking much that it moves backwards.

That’s right. Backwards. But that’s not all!

It apparently does so faster than the god damn speed of light.
