But […]

Speed camera needed for neutrinos?

John Kerr posted in on September 23rd, 2011.

Physicists have said – in a paper and in a seminar at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) – that subatomic particles known as neutrinos can break the the speed of light Albert Einstein held up as a cosmic speed limit 106 years ago.  They said the neutrinos raced from a particle accelerator outside […]
