Basically, the most capable particle physicists on the planet are the lyingest bunch of liars that ever lied.
Well, it’s looking more and more likely that CERN didn’t break the speed of light in neutrino experiments last year. The European Organization for Nuclear Research announced that there was a malfunction in the equipment used to measure how fast a beam of neutrinos travelled from CERN headquarters in Geneva to another lab in Gran Sasso, Italy. The initial experiment found that neutrinos, or nearly massless subatomic particles, had travelled the 730-kilometre distance at a speed just a notch above the speed of light, a finding that appeared to contravene Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. Many other physicists questioned the results at the time, and now CERN has determined that there was a loose fibre-optic cable in the device used to measure the neutrinos’ speed. The lab will undertake the experiment once again in May.
