Faster-than-light neutrinos completely debunked.

By now, many people probably already know that attempts to repeat the results have failed. Well the original topic got a lot of attention, but there was never a follow-up. Since I just read a 'final nail' article, I figured some might also be interested, and maybe some haven't heard.

Quote:
ScienceDaily (June 8, 2012) — At the 25th International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics in Kyoto today (June 8, 2012), CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci presented results on the time of flight of neutrinos from CERN to the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory on behalf of four experiments situated at Gran Sasso. The four, Borexino, ICARUS, LVD and OPERA all measure a neutrino time of flight consistent with the speed of light.

Thanks for that update Vastet

 Thanks for that update. 

I like to keep up to speed with the latest news. 

Much like I stated on another thread, I had this asshole theist talking about "THE GOD PARTICLE" and how it proved some sort of universal force that was in control of everything in another online debate. When I mentioned something about Higgs Boson, he did not know what I was talking about. 

When I looked it all up and explained it to him, he reverted back to "Well, um, um, SCIENTISTS are even calling it the god particle,". 

It's really too bad that the internet has given access to so many morons to spread misinformation, but that is a small price to pay  for freedom of speech. 

“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”

Read this interview with

Read this interview with Lisa Randall, theoretical physicist at Harvard. It helped me understand the LHC. The book I am considering buying.
