There are no constants.
How about that?
Science goes off of what we can demonstrate.
Until it can be demonstrated that constants aren't actually constant, we shall continue to accept that they are indeed constant. However, science is more than happy to incorporate new data.
Science doesn't care about holding an infallible image, it cares only for the truth.

Not only that, our race is quite new so to speak, we aren't the scientific geniuses that know the universe down to a tee like alot of people seem to think.
The thing is, relativity theory has been proven true as best we can prove it to be. We've put atomic clocks at different altitudes, and due to the difference in their transversal velocity, they have measured different amounts of time.
My bet is that, if these neutrinos are moving faster than light in our frame of reference, they're probably entering what science fiction writers have forever called "hyperspace" where light speed doesn't matter anymore.
