Results from Cern show particles 'exceeded speed of light'

Recommended Posts

New results from Cern, home of the Large Hadron Collider, have confounded physicists - because it seems subatomic particles have beaten the speed of light.

 

The neutrinos sent through the ground from Cern toward the Gran Sasso laboratory 732km (454 miles) away in Italy seemed to show up a tiny fraction of a second early.

 

The speed of light is the universe's ultimate speed limit, and much of modern physics - as laid out in part by Albert Einstein in his theory of special relativity - depends on the idea that nothing can exceed it.

Heard this on the news on Friday, but haven't had time to post about it. This is really intense. :|

I doubt being able to 'prove' the ability to have particles travel faster than light has any direct relevance to time travel.

Time travel! Can't wait for it! :lol:

:P I already solved tons of formulas that allows negative time travel in high school. It just turned out I made a mistake in the middle.
