Though they are waiting for verification, this puts into serious doubt Einstein's assumption that nothing is faster than light (c). What is
significant about this assumption is that it was used to resolve disparities between Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism and the classical known
laws of mechanics. It puts into doubt all his theories, such as Special (SRT) and General Relativity (GRT), which are based on this assumption. This
actually puts a lot of things into question including any subsequent theories, works, and interpretations on observable and measurable phenomena (100+
years worth) that depend on this assumption by Einstein and his related works. This is simply HUGE!!
It might be that LHC's ultimate benefit was to remove, or find fault (potentially falsify), Einstein's theories, and not to find the Higgs Bosom
which has yet to be discovered. Though it could have been done for a lot less money if mainstream science only listened to the mounting evidence that
Einstein had been wrong, at least in part. The benefit here is that in denouncing Einstein's works as ultimately being incorrect, yet giving him
credit for the critical thinking he contributed and his scientific research, that it opens the doors to new and more correct lines of thinking and
research in order to progress science and physics to the next level.
Ultimately this might amount to nothing, as in not verifying it, or worst yet, twisting the observation to fit the existing paradigm that Einstein is
absolutely correct. Whichever way this goes, it's still very big and definitely casts doubt on everything Einstein.
