    Scientists at Fermilab are investigating if all three spatial dimensions actually exist.

    The article is in Popular Science:

    I'll be honest, there's no way they get concrete proof that the 3rd dimension doesn't exist.

    They cannot move faster than the light or time that they are surmizing gives the hologram. The distortion alone can be attributed to random electron paths.

    You're probably right, although in science there's never such a thing as "concrete proof".

    It'll be interesting to see what results they do get and what conclusions can be drawn from them, though.
