Paper Virus

Paper Virus
   A way of preventing a scientific breakthrough by placing false information in data or a formula. Lets say Einstein's Theory of Relativity showed how to travel faster than light, but an alien race didn't want us to have that knowledge. They would make a small change to the formula which would show that faster than light travel was impossible. The change would be small and simple, so simple it would not be questioned. The formula would also not be questioned since it had been around for over fifty years and is fully accepted by the scientific community. See Computer Virus.
