Scientists at Hope University in Boston, Mass. released details today of a recent incident in one of their refraction labs.
It appears that during an experiment involving a crude Scalextric track made from strings of carbon atoms, a light wave was overtaken by a rogue sound wave.
"We're quite impressed with the young lad - he's taken quite a bit of coaching. We knew that he could overtake old lighty at some point. It was just a matter of pumping him up with some lucosade ions."
The scallywag, nicknamed "Skywalker" is said to be most impressed with his victory. From the team that was racing light:
"We didn't think anything could overtake our man. But all credit to Skywalker - the boy done good."
Some critisicm came in from the public today over whether tax money should be being spent on constructing molecular Scalextric tournaments, but the majority of this criticism was shunned.
