Particle Physics and Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos…Discuss.

by Jason Major October 3, 2011

On September 22, an international team of researchers working on the OPERA project at the Gran Sasso research facility released a paper on some potentially physics-shattering findings: beams of neutrinos that had traveled from the CERN facility near Geneva to their detector array outside of Rome at a speed faster than light. (Read more about […]
