    CERN: We've Broke The Speed of Light

    Short Version:

    GENEVA (AP) Scientists at the world's largest physics lab say they have clocked subatomic particles traveling faster than light. If that's true, it would break if not severely twist a fundamental pillar of physics.

    Nothing is supposed to go faster than light. But scientists say that neutrinos one of the strangest well-known particles in physics smashed past the cosmic speed barrier of 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers).


    The European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, says the speeds were detected in a neutrino beam fired from Geneva to a lab 454 miles (730 kilometers) away in Italy.


    Baffled scientists are asking others to independently verify the measurements or find other more mundane explanations for the measured speed.
    More info here for example:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/8...-of-light.html

    Wow. That's insane. Is time travel possible?

    I'll wait for more measurements, and hopefully an explanation, before believing this.

    Maybe the reality we know has already been altered by time travelers. The knowledge of the Egyptians, the Mayans, the explosion of knowledge that took place just a few centuries ago, could have all been the product of time travel, of which this article was the starting point.

    Not if Time Cop JCVD stopped them first. This is all really quite interesting, however unlikely it may be. It's obvious that the physicists are not confident in what they have found. They would be more affected than anyone, if the constant changes all their research would become null. They wouldn't be experts in physics anymore, hell they may as well have gone to school for philosophy.

    also remember time travel may be possible, but its probably not possible in a safe way. what actually happens to atoms when they travel at such speeds is unknown and going through the "light barrier" would probably $#@! all kinds of things up

    That's an interesting theory.

    That's pretty awesome if something goes faster than the speed of light. I'd like some more concrete evidence of this first. Just imagine what else there is to find and discover.

    Initial reaction to this.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Let me just say Time Travel would be freakin amazing. Not everyone would be allowed the acess to it tho, don't want to mess up everything.

    You'd think so. But maybe in the future they know the importance of not knowing the future.

    At least Doc Brown thinks so.

    I encourage everyone to watch STeins Gate about time travel. Basically there are many diff world lines, and some stay in same yet one little act can switch us from an alpha line to a beta line and non of us would ever know. That is why I think time travel is possible, and has been achieved, but we will never know about it.
    I have twitter to https://twitter.com/GamerYuichi , Also started youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMu7yRGCz8QrTyxaNVR3Tqw I don't always twitch, but when I can you can find my noobness http://www.twitch.tv/yuichimccry,

    Even if it is true it'll be a long time before we can get anything larger/heavier going anywhere near that speed. Not to mention what might happen to said object (probe etc.) when it broke the light barrier.

    Common sense isn't all that common.

    All of a sudden, the universe seems a little smaller, doesn't it? 76 years to get to Alpha Centauri? Quite possibly not. We've only measured the universe in terms of what we have been able to see and detect. Now, with this possible advent, we have to go back to the drawing board. Perhaps, light is actually slow in the grand scheme of things. If so, the things we are looking for as forces moving on astronomical bodies needs to be given consideration as well. Maybe "dark matter" was just some silly notion we had to explain phenomena that will have a perfectly rational explanation as we expand our understanding of post-light-speed particles and their properties.
