+ - Ephemeral Vacuum Particles Cause Fluctuations in the Speed of Light->

Submitted by skade88
skade88 (1750548) writes "From the article 'Is the nature of a vacuum really fixed? Not so, according to two forthcoming papers. Researchers have identified a quantum level mechanism for interpreting a vacuum as being filled with pairs of virtual particles with fluctuating energy values. They've also discovered that physical constraints, such as the speed of light and the so-called impedance of free space, are indications of the total number of elementary particles in nature.'"
