Submission + - Arriving 60 nanoseconds too soon? Not so fast, neutrinos! (sciencemag.org)

stillnotelf writes: ScienceInsider is carrying the news that the controversial faster-than-light neutrinos detected by the OPERA experiment (covered in Slashdot here, here, here, here, here, and here) are attributable to an experimental error. Briefly, there was a mistimed connection between their GPS receiver synchronizing the experiment and the computer collecting the data. The timing was off by 60 nanoseconds — the same 60 nanoseconds by which neutrinos were arriving too early.
