Caught Speeding?

In a recent article posted on the BBC website, Scientists have found that some subatomic particles have appeared to exceed the speed of light. This find once fully explored and fully documented could have significant impacts on our current understanding of physics.

Jason Palmer writes:

Puzzling results from Cern, home of the LHC, have confounded physicists – because it appears subatomic particles have exceeded the speed of light.

Neutrinos sent through the ground from Cern toward the Gran Sasso laboratory 732km away seemed to show up a tiny fraction of a second early.

The result – which threatens to upend a century of physics – will be put online for scrutiny by other scientists.
