If the sun were to suddenly disappear (explode) would the gravitational effects of that be experienced here on earth instantaneously or eight minutes. I guess I am asking if information can travel faster than the speed of light?

The John Bardeen Prize was established in 1991 by the organizers of the International Conference on the Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity (M2S) in honor of Dr. John Bardeen for theoretical work that has provided significant insights on the nature of superconductivity and has led to verifiable predictions. The award is sponsored by the Department of Physics of the University of Illinois and by the Friends of Bardeen.
The Bardeen Prize is given every three years at the M2S Conference.
