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.

He is currently unemployed, although he has plans. BIG plans. Among the things that he has done for a laugh are minor fractures, cuts, scrapes, and various scabs. Though he's quick to point out that he's no imbecile, we're fairly certain that he thinks the word means some kind of medieval pharmacist. This is his latest home on teh internets - where he stores his swear words, when he's not hurling them at the sun in vain.
