7 billion year old Gamma rays prove Einstein was right

High and low energy photons arrive at NASA's Fermi spacecraft orbiting 550 km above the Earth a mere 900 ms apart after traveling through space for 7 billion years. This suggests that the fabric of space-time isn't a bubbly foam, a hypothesis favoured by quantum theorists but is closer to Einstein's description of a smooth rubbery membrane.
