Neutrino particles are still faster than the speed of light and Einstein may be wrong, according to the results of a repeated experiment by the same team who made the original finding in September.
The experiment fired neutrinos from CERN in Switzerland to a lab 730 kilometres away in Italy, according to the Washington Post.
Dr. Pierre Savard, a researcher at CERN and the University of Toronto who works with the Large Hadron Collider, spoke to thedailyplanet.com about the experiment’s results.
If the findings are proven, Savard said Einstein’s theory of relativity, along with what we know of physics, will need to be reworked.
The INFN, the Italian lab in the test, said in a statement “the positive outcome in the test makes us more confident in the result.”
However, like the report published by CERN, INFN encouraged scrutiny.
“The final word can only be said by analogous measures performed elsewhere in the world.”
