A friend of mine sent me this article today. If they can replicate this experiment, think about the possibilities that exist.

I literally just read about this a few minutes before I saw your comment. It is astonishing and, if confirmed, one of the most thrilling discoveries in the history of science.

What fucking times we live in, eh? I'm just incredibly excited by this . . .

I've been gushing about it all day thinking of the possible new experiments that could spawn from it. If it actually gets through all the peer review that it requires, AND they get the same results, then holy shit!

""The neutrino is one of the least understood particles," says Richard Van de Water of the MiniBooNE team. "If there's extra physics, it's a good place for nature to hide it."

"...If MINOS were to confirm OPERA's find, the consequences would be enormous. "If you give up the speed of light, then the construction of special relativity falls down," says Antonino Zichichi, a theoretical physicist and emeritus professor at the University of Bologna, Italy. Zichichi speculates that the 'superluminal' neutrinos detected by OPERA could be slipping through extra dimensions in space, as predicted by theories such as string theory...."

Special Relativity says that it takes an infinite amount of energy to move a less-than-speed-of-light object to the speed of light, correct? If Special Relativity falls down, as the Professor suggests, then why not start new experiments involving time travel?

What times we live in...
