Unlike classical physics, where there are no restrictions on the maximum speed V of objects, the special theory of relativity (SRT) sets a fundamental limit c = 3·108 m/s - the speed of light in vacuum. Despite the centuries-old history of checking other SRT consequences, the upper speed limit has not been established reliably. Direct measurements of the velocity by the time-of-flight method (TOF-detectors), as a rule, are performed for ions, far from the light barrier - at a momentum p <1 GeV/c per nucleon, when the classical V = p/m < c For ultrarelativistic particles, direct measurements are not made with TOF cameras. And in rare experiments, interpreted as confirmation of the threshold c, superluminal velocities have been revealed.
