If Gravity were to race Light...

In an interesting test of the theory of relativity
they found that gravity travels at the same speed as light. Put simply if the sun were to disappear from existence it would take some 8 minutes before the Earth's orbit would be affected by the loss. Sadly this also means that FTL travel
is becoming less and less likely to be possible.
