An amazing story which I covered in depth in Thursday’s “Daily TAM Briefing,” and I’d love to see what TAMs and readers think 🙂 Because you may have additional information about this that would be well served by an outside source, the “No Links” rule is lifted for the post on this topic.
The main issue for me is this means that the foundation of quantum physics has been wrong and, if this discovery ends up being true, everyone would have to start from scratch. To say nothing of the possibility of time travel, which some scientists say this makes possible. I don’t know if God had that in mind, so we’ll see if the puny humans know what it is they’re doing 😉
Leading scientists said on Friday the discovery of sub-atomic particles apparently traveling faster than light could force a major rethink of theories on the makeup of the cosmos if independently confirmed.
Jeff Forshaw, a professor of particle physics at Britain’s Manchester University, told Reuters the results if confirmed would mean it would be possible in theory to “send information into the past.”
“In other words, time travel into the past would become possible…(though) that does not mean we’ll be building time-machines anytime soon.”
The Guardian story to which I referred during the DTB, includes the “picture” of neutrinos:
