Comment Pertaining to “Observation of the Dynamical Casimir Effect in a Superconducting Circuit”, Nature 10:1038 V 479

Authors: Vic Kley, John Celenza

The recent measurements of the Casimir effect by Wilson, et al1 established the existence of a pervasive background of charged particles in what has been perceived as an empty Universe. As a result, photons moving through what we have hitherto taken as a vacuum will be slowed5, while neutrino speed will be unaffected. All our measurements of the propagation of light and its wavelength have not been been corrected for this slowing.
