Particles Found to Travel Faster than Speed of Light

ésta noticia recorrió el mundo hoy ...

This result is not yet conclusive. When something like this happens, a LOT of research, confirmation, requete-confirmation, attempts to duplicate results, etc. must be performed BEFORE they can conclude that those neutrinos were indeed moving at speeds higher than light.

If this observation turns out to be a true discovery, it may require a revision of relativity as it is known today. But most likely it will not overturn it completely. :-)

I am VERY rusty in my fundamental physics, so please forgive me if this opinion turns out to be nonsense X D

PS : if you are interested on reading the original paper where this came out, it's available HERE:
