Hey did scientists ever figure out the issue when they first reported Neutrinos had traveled in excess of the speed of light?
It was due to errors and improper setup. Subsequent tests with neutrinos didn't show faster than light travel.
Figured as much.. I couldn't remember what the second outcome was.
Thanks for the response / info.
ETA - I am somewhat lost when it comes to quantum mechanics so I have a question (most likely a very stupid one) -
Would it be possible to "view" a planet by using Quantum Entanglement from the light emanating from it?

because: (no reason given)
probably not at least for a long long long time. just like with light the star is a brilliant source and
the planets only source is radioactive decay. so 99.99999999 etc percent of any neutrinos from that area will be from the star even though some of
those will pass through the planet and be altered a bit. if you had sufficient resolution (number of neutrino detectors to make billions of pixels in
an image) then maybe with the right filtering you could but there are two problems.
Right now each individual neutrino detector is very very large like nearly olympic swimming pool large. so that means until new tech like in the op
is implemented (and even that is too large for the type of resolution we are talking about) it is impractical.
our other planet finding techniques are mature enough to find planets now and the next generation will be finding earth size or smaller planets
anywhere around stars up to thousands of light years away. there is no need for neutrino planet finders unless it is for orphaned planets in the
middle of the void away from all stars.
