Two leaders of "Faster-Than-Light" Neutrino Team Resign

On the morning of September 22, 2011, OPERA spokesperson Antonio Ereditato announced to the world that members of the OPERA experiment had observed neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light. The next day, experimental coordinator Dario Autiero presented the team's findings at an internationally broadcasted… » 3/30/12 12:12pm 3/30/12 12:12pm

Faster-than-light neutrinos could be proof of extra dimensions

The recent announcement that neutrinos had been observed seemingly going faster than the speed of light sent shockwaves through the physics community. But there's one possible explanation that could keep Einstein's relativity intact and open up a whole new cosmos. » 9/28/11 1:36pm 9/28/11 1:36pm

Physicists explain controversial finding of faster-than-light particles

Yesterday, CERN physicists shocked the world with news of a scientific finding that could revolutionize the field of physics. The researchers claim to have observed what many had believed to be impossible: subatomic particles called neutrinos moving faster than the speed of light. » 9/23/11 3:15pm 9/23/11 3:15pm

Faster Than Light Neutrinos? Not So Fast

So did the folks at CERN really record neutrinos moving faster than light? Was Einstein wrong about light speed being a universal speed limit? It's too early to tell, and regular io9 contributor Dr. Dave Goldberg has some doubts. » 9/22/11 6:01pm 9/22/11 6:01pm
