+ - Neutrinos seem to be exceeding light speed->

Submitted by

Curunir_wolf writes "Researchers at Cern have come across a puzzling result: The neutrinos they are emitted from underground to the laboratory detector 732km away appear to be getting there faster than the speed-of-light limit would allow. The experiment, the Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus or OPERA, was developed to study the phenomenon of neutrino transmutation (neutrinos changing from one type to another. The speed of the neutrinos, of course, was an entirely unexpected observation. "We wanted to find a mistake — trivial mistakes, more complicated mistakes, or nasty effects — and we didn't." says researcher Antonio Ereditato, "When you don't find anything, then you say 'Well, now I'm forced to go out and ask the community to scrutinise this.'""
