Default list of things that can travel faster than light

We need to update our list.

We know that
- shadows can travel FTL.
- spots of light e.g. a laser shone on the moon can move FTL.
- the universe travelled FTL for 1000s of years after the big bang.
It may still be moving FTL if space is still expanding anywhere.
- Relativity predicts the existence of wormholes that allow
timetravel and FTL. AFAIK no observation has confirmed these things yet.
On the other side quantum entanglement behaves in many respects
like wormholes and that is more common that dirt. Quantum teleportation
via entanglement has been confirmed many times and some of the information
teleported effectively goes FTL.
- A few years ago some clever people discovered an infinite number of
solutions of Einsteins gravity equations that allowed FTL.
It takes a lot of energy and essentially creates a black hole in
front of a spaceship and a white hole behind. While the people
in the spaceship don't feet the effect of any acceleration they
do get fried by the radiation from the white hole.
More recently, somehow has proposed a "Newtonian" space warp
that can reach lightspeed and takes a whole lot less energy to get
going. At least one group has started to research building this version.
- And even light can travel faster than light. In 1995 it was confirmed
photons between Casimir plates travelled faster than light.
