Speed of Light May Still Be the Limit

Postby Brian » Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:35 pm

Hi, Everyone.

I don't know how many of you have been following the story about the neutrinos that might be going faster than light, but this is an interesting follow-up. It seems that there could be a lot of potential problems with the data.

If the idea is that going FTL means you'd be going back in time, I'd say it's pretty much game over, but we have to wait for the data, I guess.

So...the experiment was flawed because of loose wiring?????? Sheesh.

Yeah, if that was it, that sounds like a pretty boneheaded mistake to make.
