Faster-Than-Light Neutrinos Replicated

Wee!!!!  This is exciting.  Granted, the jury is apt to be out for a while, but a second experiment at CERN has produced even better evidence of FTL Neutrinos.  This experiment produced proton pulses 60 times shorter than the previous experiment.  The 3 nanosecond (3 billionths of a second)  bursts seem to have produced statistically verified results that show the neutrinos arriving 60 nanoseconds before a beam of light would arrive.

If, and that’s still a big if, this experiment holds up, it blows Einstein’s Theory of Relativity out of the water.  The basic tenant of Relativity is that nothing,  NOTHING can exceed the speed of light (299792458 m/s).  Some people are upset by this, yet a basic to scientific investigation is that you can never completely prove a theory.  A theory is tested experimentally and you can never run an exhaustive series of tests.  And all it takes is one negative proof to require, at least, a change in the theory.  What exciting new discoveries might be brought to light?  (Pun intended)

Even Sir Isaac Newton’s laws don’t hold up under all conditions.  As an engineer that’s O.K. by me.  It works for any condition I will probably encounter.  I still can predict with, almost absolute accuracy,  my terminal (hmm? Another paronomasia?) velocity and kinetic energy that would be released  after I jumped out of a 10 story window.

Stay tuned!

    Before 23 years, I had proved that relative velocity may be more than light velocity. CERN proved experimentally that velocity of Neutrinos may be more than light, if this news will be confirmed then that will be new beginning of science. Please read paper “What is matter & dark matter is made up of?” on my web site http://www.maheshkhati.com. This paper may help to find solution to problems like what is dark matter? & about true relativity. I strongly oppose special theory of relativity because I think that has some basic fundamental problems
