Scientists at Glasgow and Heriot-watt universities in Scotland raced particles of light, discovering that one beat the other by a few millionths of a meter. 
Their bright idea blows the theory that light always travels at the same speed in space. They did it first by sending light particles through a device that changed their shape. Experiment explained.
