Something traveling faster than light itself?! Einstein is spinning in his grave! Jk jk, he was cremated and his ashes scattered. But scientists at CERN (as in, I’m conCERNed about the wack-ass experiments you’re always conducting!) claim they’ve detected subatomic neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light’s 299,792,458 meters/second. LIES!
Neutrinos sent through the ground from Cern toward the Gran Sasso laboratory 732km away seemed to show up a tiny fraction of a second early.
The result – which threatens to upend a century of physics – will be put online for scrutiny by other scientists.
“We tried to find all possible explanations for this,” said report author Antonio Ereditato of the Opera collaboration.
“We wanted to find a mistake – trivial mistakes, more complicated mistakes, or nasty effects – and we didn’t,” he told BBC News.
Pfft, let me take a look at these so-called “results”. *examining* HA — right here, Antonio — you forgot to carry the 3! I swear, scientists these days.
Thanks to joshua m., regular Josh, Rob, jordan (that’s three J tipsters!) and Candice, who are all smart enough to know the only thing that could possibly be faster than light is darkness. Know what I’m sayin’? I’m sayin’ nighttime is the righttime.
You’ll probably be waiting a few weeks at the very least — but if you want to put in your order early, Amazon’s US site is more than happy to take your name for Nokia’s latest QWERTY monster. The E7 is running a stout $ 679 — and that’s not through a third party, that’s Amazon’s direct price for an official American version of the phone with a full manufacturer warranty. Feels pricey to us, but Amazon’s pricing tends to fluctuate fairly regularly, so we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see this fall a bit by the time the phone actually ships — and if Espoo announces the rumored MeeGo-powered N9 by the time the E7′s available, they might need to discount it a whole lot.
