Soldiers could one day conduct covert operations in complete secrecy, now that Pentagon-backed physicists have figured out how to mask entire events by distorting light.
A team at Cornell University, with support from Darpa, the Pentagon’s out-there research arm, managed to hide an event for 40 picoseconds (those are trillionths of seconds, if you’re counting). They’ve published their groundbreaking research in this week’s edition of the journal Nature.
This is the first time that scientists have succeeded in masking an event, though research teams have in recent years made remar
the research marks “a significant step towards full spatio-temporal cloaking.”

According to Cornell scientists, it’d take a machine 18,600 miles long to produce a time mask that lasts a single second.

Interesting concept. But I don't put any stock in to Wired.com
After all, it was Wired that recently claimed Obama teleported to Mars twice since the age of 19.
I would rather waste my time watching Bill O'Reilly, than believe anything published by the weirdos at Wired.

Its sad you dont have the ability to see the massive potential for technological innovation that this break through highlights. But thats ok im sure dancing with the stars will be on soon. I hear its going to be a nail biter of an episode
