You're not so fast after all!

Scientists have discovered new information that makes Albert Einstein look like a real asshole. His theory of relativity introduced the rule that nothing can trave faster than the speed of light, and that belief has long been held as a pillar of psychics. However, European scientists report that they’ve clocked a neutrino traveling faster than 186,282 miles per second. Way to go, Einstein.

The scientists have checked and rechecked their experiment to make sure nothing had gone wrong, but so far everything seems to have been in order. Now other members of the scientific community are testing their findings. If this is true, perhaps someday we’ll all have some sweet spaceships like the ones on this list.

Max – Flight of the Navigator

Max is likely to be the sketchiest ship on this list. First of all, it’s voiced be Paul Reubens. That may not seem so bad, but you should also keep in mind that the ship traveled 560 light years to abduct a young boy and take him for a joy ride through outer space. Also, it’s unmarked.

Th Battlestar GalacticaBattlestar Galactica

Though a bit of a clunker, the Galactica is capable of light-speed travel. However, there are drawbacks. For instance, when escorting refugees, she must limit her speed to that of the fleet’s slowest ship. And for a short while, all jumps to light-speed were done so blind, meaning that the crew could not predict where they would arrive after their jumps. It’s like getting hammered and falling asleep in a taxi.

Weirdos’ Ship – Muppets From Space

Not only is this ship capable of traveling faster than the speed of light, but its inhabitants can also communicate via bowls of cereals and sandwiches. Never saw Spock pull anything like that off.

People still have those?Story centers on a young pilot who makes the Earth Interstellar Racing Team and must take his ship on a perilous journey across the galaxy on the brink of war. Bruckheimer envisions the project as a live-action and potentially 3D pic.Haha. Good one, Variety. "Potentially 3D pic."
