“According to scientists familiar with the paper, the neutrinos raced from a particle accelerator at CERN outside Geneva, where they were created, to a cavern underneath Gran Sasso in Italy, a distance of about 450 miles, about 60 nanoseconds faster than it would take a light beam.”
Probably, it will turn out to be a mismeasurement. But it just might mean that the speed of light isn’t the ultimate limit scientists thought, which would have major implications for physics. Although, I guess it might also be the case that the hard-and-fast limit is just c + 60 ns, which wouldn’t buy us much.
But for now, allow me a few minutes of pretending that Star Wars-like light-speed space travel is possible.
