CERN claims faster-than-light particle measured
By FRANK JORDANS, Associated Press – 1 hour ago
GENEVA (AP) — Scientists at the world’s largest physics lab say they have clocked subatomic particles traveling faster than light, a feat that — if true — would break a fundamental pillar of science.
The readings have so astounded researchers that they are asking others to independently verify the measurements before claiming an actual discovery.
“This would be such a sensational discovery if it were true that one has to treat it extremely carefully,” said John Ellis, a theoretical physicist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, who was not involved in the experiment.
Nothing is supposed to move faster than light, at least according to Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity: The famous E (equals) mc2 equation. That stands for energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.
Could tachyon generation, even for research purposes, have unintended effects on the environment?
guess I should relax with /popcorn and see...Oh, check it out:Japan knocked out of Tachyon research race by 2011 earthquake
Katsanevas, who participated in the CERN experiment, said help could also come from the T2K experiment in Japan, though that is currently on hold after the country’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in March.
Guess it does pay to be conCERNed citizens LOL
