NEW YORK, EARTH – Noted European physicist Omar Panderyn today announced that he was leaving his teaching position at Oxford University to take a lead role on Spark’s faster-than-light development project.

“The work remains in its infancy, to be sure,” Panderyn told CBN. “But I am confident that Bob Busby and the Spark team, working in tandem with the Vanguard, are on the right track. I am proud to lend any support I can to the project.”

He’s expected to start his job on Sept. 1.
