Researchers at the CERN laboratory near Geneva say that they’ve measured sub-atomic particles travelling faster than the speed of light. Read the full story, here.
What I like about this story (besides being one tiny step closer to Warp speed) is the scientific response. Einstein’s theory of relativity has been universally accepted for close to a hundred years; you could say there has been a “consensus”. Some researchers have performed an experiment that shows that Einstein’s theory that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light is false, and the response of the scientific community – repeat the experiment and duplicate your results. No hysteria. No charges of someone being a “denier”. The scientific method at work. I think even Einstein would approve.
