What if Einstein was wrong? What if the speed of light wasn't constant, but instead was variable? It's a bold idea, and one that might finally lead cosmologists to the long sought after "theory of everything." Host Ira Flatow and guests discuss the latest in cosmology news, including a revised estimate of the age of the universe, and evidence for dark energy.
