According to the theory of Albert Einstein, the speed limit in the world of light is the ultimate speed, but an experience that was the performance of Dr. Ereditato and his team for the past three years suggest that neutrinos can travel more faster than light.
This surprising result from CERN to look for errors. As Dr. Ereditato said:
"We do not pretend things, we just want to be helped by the community in understanding our results fou -
because he is crazy "
For more information about the test (OPERA detector, measurement methods, the selection of data, conclusions), you can read
"Measuring the speed of neutrinos with the OPERA detector in the CNGS beam"
The OPERA neutrino experiment at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory measured
Rate CNGS neutrino beam from CERN on a base of about 730 km with much higher
precision than previous studies with accelerator neutrinos. The measurement is based on highstatistics
Data collected by the opera in 2009, 2010 and 2011. CNGS specific updates
timing system and the OPERA detector and high precision geodesy campaign
Basic measuring neutrinos must achieve an accuracy comparable systematic and statistical.
An early arrival time of muon neutrinos from CNGS calculated assuming a speed
light in vacuum (60.7 ± 6.9 (stat.) ± 7.4 (op)) ns was measured. This anomaly corresponds to a relative
The difference between the speed of the muon neutrino from the speed of light (vc) / c = (2.48 ± 0.28 (stat.) ±
0.30 (op)) × 10-5.
