Scientists said on Thursday they recorded particles travelling faster than light - a finding that could overturn one of Einstein's fundamental laws of the universe. Antonio Ereditato, spokesman for the international group of researchers, saidthat measurements taken over three years showed neutrinos pumped from CERN near Geneva to Gran Sasso in Italy had arrived 60 nanoseconds quicker than light would have done


Could it be that at a certain, fundamental level, that particles of a certain type may be able to travel faster than light, because certain rules of the world you and I jnow are merely emergent properties of an as-of-yet discovered mechanism of physics that does not comport with the standard model predictions of the quantum world?

It's an interesting idea. It must be asked because everywhere we look the laws of physics comport with the 'c'.




EDIT:

I got nailed by an April Fools joke.

Hah! I thought I was free being the 5th. lol

The really weird thing is that the measured neutrones goes faster than light ONLY ONCE a year.

You know, on April 1st.

Uh, did you notice the date of the article?

yeah, the date they are allowed to tell the truth and the military won't kill them.

I can't read the article. What particle? Is it lighter than light?

It was supposedly getting to the detector 60 ns before it should have. And the article is on April 1. At CERN website, they had a "Humpty Dumpty" particle "find" story up. On April 2, they came back and said, "Did you like our April Fool's Day joke?" in case you didn't get it. Same here.

C'mon - you know the rules about April fools day - did they discover it before or after midday? Also, have you seen the strange sh!t that goes on inside and outside of that joint?

Come on! Fall for this stuff on April 1st. I totally wasn't expecting this to be a 4-day old April Fool's joke and I got all excited and ready to nerd the hell out before I noticed the date.

Damn you.

How much faster than the speed of light is that? What is the warp factor?

It took me a minute, and then I finally realized what that must look like:

With ocean waves and desert dunes, smaller waves and ripples travel faster than larger ones. We can consider those ripples going around water draining down a plughole as equivalent to a gravity waves around a black hole. So something smaller than a photon could travel faster than a photon.

I'm just wondering if the diapers come like that, or if he has to put the My Little Pony stickers on them one by one. Hopefully when Ante has his big boy pants back on he'll be brave and tell us the secret.

Voltron?!?

Shouldnt you be playing with TRANSformers?
