Faster Than Light Neutrinos Confirmed?
Over at his new digs at Forbes, Alex Knapp passes along some intriguing new information about a report that shook the scientific world in September:
The OPERA collaborative in Italy, which stunned the physics community in September by claiming they had detected neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light, has completed a second run of tests in the hopes of reducing the uncertainty of the result. They have submitted their findings for peer review, but the group has stated that they have confirmed their earlier result, and again detected neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light.
There are still a lot of questions about these results, and the way the follow-up experiments were conducted, which Alex details. However, it leaves open the intriguing possibility that science is about to be turned on its head.
