One thing physicists have agreed on for a long time is that nothing can exceed the speed of light, 292,700 km per second. But researchers in Europe say - very cautiously - that Einstein seems to be wrong. Experimenters at CERN appear to have shown that a beam of neutrinos traveled faster than light. To say this got everyone's attention is an understatement. Is this possible, and, if so, why did no one see it before? The CERN scientists are asking colleagues in other facilities to duplicate the experiment. They only announced it after painstaking checking of their instrumentation.
COMMENT: Wow. My first reaction would be the experiment has to be flawed. But these folks have gone about things the right way, looking for problems and then asking others to try and duplicate their results. Stay tuned!
