This latest flurry of interest in superluminal phenomena is interesting
in that everything is new again. I have found references to superluminal
signals being noticed when the first transatlantic radio transmission
sent. Some five years ago, or so, I'd heard discussion of whether or not
superluminal phenomena would invalidate the theory of relativity, and
conjecture was that the theory of relativity is also relative. Now there
is discussion of the speed of gravity, which I believe I saw as
at more than 30x's light. But thanks again for this reference, rather
generating controversy, it would seem a more inclusive and unified
