Lightspeed, a new online Science Fiction magazine featuring fiction and nonfiction, launches today.
Light Speed! Ever wondered what it would look like to be passed by am 1957 Chevy Bel-Air going at 539,999,900 km/h?
Lightspeed is a fun little shareware game that I stumbled across today.

Warning: windows only download, shareware fee to unlock many levels and features.
Just how plausable is time travel? Could you go back in time and kill your own grandfather?. Would you want to? Time travel is a popular subject for films, but do the writers work out exactly what is happening? Current opinion seems to be that time travel is only possible to the future, and is only one way, by travelling at near light speed. However despite this, time machines seem to already be on sale.
Can the speed of light be broken? It's not 1 April, so this actually might be true. It'll be interesting to see the paper in Nature, if and when.
