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...

Suppose a light ray travelling near a black hole, which has so much gravity that the escape velocity is twice the speed of light, got caught in its gravitational field. Will the light travel at the speed of light or travel at double the speed of light?Similarly what happen to other objects...

I have heard many times that one reason the "inflation theory" has been challenged is the argument that is if it were true then the expansion would have to happened at a speed faster than light, in violation of the General Theory of Relativity. Given there was no matter during the...

If I was on a space ship traveling at the speed of light (The natural speed limit proposed by Einstein) and I fired a gun would the bullet remain in the gun?My belief is no it would not. I believe the bullet would leave the gun at the same increased velocity that it would achieve if I had fired the...

Original source: http://news.yahoo.com/hidden-einsteins- … 03805.html-------"Before Chuck Yeager became the first person to travel faster than the speed of sound in 1947, many experts questioned whether it could be done. Scientists worried that the plane would disintegrate, or the human...

Do you believe it will be possible to travel close to the speed of light?
