60 nanoseconds faster than photons

Very, very interesting...

My youngest son Tim brought this to my attention when it broke yesterday.  My first thought was "cold fusion" until I read it came out of CERN.

Here is the bottom line so far:  "In the course of doing the experiments, the researchers noticed that the particles showed up 60 billionths of a second earlier than they would have done if they had traveled at the speed of light."

  1. I think the irreplaceable XKCD already nailed this one.

    "When there's a news story about a study overturning all of physics... I just find excited believers and bet them $200 each that the new result won't pan out."
