[ars] Faster-than-light neutrino result apparently a mistake due to loose cable - Page 5

LOL

Ohhhh man...

So... all we need to do is find the cable that the universe uses to govern relativity, loosen it a little... and then neutrinos can start exceeding c and we can have our bloody warp drives and teleporters and stuff.

They should just do what they did on futurama, you cant go faster then the speed of light, so why not just increase the speed of light thumb.gif

If there was something else I was never exposed to it in Physics class...I'd be interested to know about it.

No, what relativity threshed out was that you cannot accelerate a particle with mass to or above the speed of light. There is nothing in relativity that precludes objects existing at the speed of light--which is exactly what neutrinos are expected to do. Neutrinos hypothetically come into existence already traveling FTL, this doesn't violate anything.

Am I missing the emphasis on how incredibly hard it is to know that the equipment is out of alignment, or something?
How can you do anything with a measurement instrument without having certainty it is accurate?

A common misconception but CERN never actually questioned relativity. The whole time, they only asked other scientists to help them figure out why they got the results that they did. They never claimed to think they had evidence of actually going faster than the speed of light. That was just the public interpretation of it thanks to journalists reporting on science who, as usual, don't understand what they're reporting on.

they can but imagine this there is a camera that can shoot 1 second !but disecting the info after(i mean just viewing it would take 100 if not thousand of years!grin!not very practicle

this reminds me of an observatory finding a stable black hole that was bigger than its schwarzschild radius and it got all the cosmologists riled up. then a few months later, "oops, sorry, dirty optical cable!"

You forgot the media reaction: "Science Implodes!!!"

We really need better science education in the schools and better science reporting everywhere else doh.gif
