Re: Haven't seen this here: Neutrinos faster than light

Hehe.

Anyway, so far as I've heard, neutrinos are kinda crazy anyway (even in terms of quantum mechanics) so there is a lot of speculation that this may be refuted. Hell, a neutrino can pass through the earth without hitting anything. I'm not certain, but I don't know that any other particle can do that. With all that uncertainty, there are legitimate questions if anyone will be able to repeat this result.

And hey, even if it does, it is such a small difference that reorganizing physics can't be that hard. Sure, Einstein may be wrong, but then, he did everything as thought experiments without machinery. And his work lasted over 100 years already. Still impressive.

Still, exciting times for physics if it pans out.
