    So how do you like the shock rippling through the scientific community about the neutrinos? Everyone's going crazy trying to debunk, explain, be thrilled, and every other reaction to experimental results of neutrinos traveling faster than light!
    It's something we've counted on since childhood - nothing moves faster than the speed of light and now...

      The acceptance of this new data depends upon the abiliaty of other teams to independently replicate the results. It may be too soon to toss out the old theories.

      A theory is just that, a theory.  If neutrinos move faster than light then it will add to the theory and the sum of knowledge will progress a little more.

      This is the exciting thing about science.  I can't wait to see how things progress with the Collider.  Maybe Einstein WAS a crack...
