Faster than light neutrinos?

September 27th, 2011

The response of the "public" to the faster than light neutrinos has been quite amusing, but also sort of sad to me. It is amazing how everyone seems to have an opinion even if they don't have the slightest understanding of what was done in the experiment. To some, Einstein's theory of relativity has now been definitively proven to be wrong, and the whole field of physics goes with it. Others seem to think a 750 km long tunnel exists between Switzerland and Italy. After all, how could you send subatomic particles from one place to another if there was no such tunnel, right? :-)
