Give Einstein a break.
We all have trouble comprehending infinity.

This is unbelievible if confirmed,we may see time travel within our lifetime,of course we will only send information at first and maybe a human within this century...I tried to explain this possible break thru to my hard of hearing grandfather but it was like trying to break the sound barrier as i screamed into his alledged one good ear,"you are really going deaf" i said, no i'm not! he answered,"I just hear a lot slower than your fast talking smart alecky light speed mouth, who in the hell wants to remember the future like it was yesterday.,

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity and I'm not sure about the former.

Neutrinos pass through the earth on a regular basis because they can go between or through atoms/molecules/etc..
No boundaries to subsequent gravity, mass or other impedances.
Even light can be influenced (i.e. bent) by gravity...

Wait until they start proving their theories about there being as many as 10 different dimensions.

By only regret will be not being around long enough to witness them being put to use...
