And my new favorite site: Calamities of Nature
Do neutrinos really travel faster than the speed of light? Maybe. If you haven’t heard, check out some articles here, here, and here. The original study has been made public and is currently under peer review but if you’re interested, the PDF can be found here.
Many scholars in the field of astronomy and physics are challenging the merits of the study because neutral subatomic particles traveling faster than the speed of light would undermine Einstein’s theory of relativity, which would change the world of physics as we know it. Not that it hasn’t happened before (Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, and so on). Anyways, until further experiments are carried out at the CERN LHC, sci-fi fanatics should keep those pants on.
