If Special Relativity is untrue then General relativity certainly is, I'd say that was pretty damn Earth shattering.
"Tachyons and time travel would not be a part of such a theory."
Maybe maybe not, its far too early to make any dogmatic assertions, but I will say that I'd be very sirprise if the luminiferous Ether made a comeback after more than a century.
And it will probably all turn out to be a mistake, but if not all bets are off.
