In other words, its power to explain is seen as an indicator of its truth.
Glad they’re being suitably cautious; we’ll keep watching.
Nature knows the answer at the moment, and we’re trying to find out at last what it is.
“In some cases it takes months, sometimes up to a year, to verify that everyone in the collaboration is happy.”
“This effect has been precisely verified in classical experiments, but not in conjunction with quantum effects, which is the aim of the newly proposed experiment. “
“If the Cohen–Glashow effect is a valid prediction, “neutrinos are not superluminal”
Even a meeting of elite minds at Europe’s top particle physics lab couldn’t do it.
So it will be really interesting to see is whether, in a year or so, some sources are rewriting history to show that they never really thought there was a Higgs boson.
It hasn’t been a more fun time to be a theoretical physicist in a century, we’re betting.
Quantum mechanics may explain some hard-to-explain facts about life.
Whatever would we do without real skeptics (who generally don’t set much store by belonging to “Skeptical Societies”)

Ball hopes Darwin will solve the problem.
Here, we still hold out hope that the faster-than-light neutrinos are an honest mistake. But the glory of real science is precisely that Einstein could be wrong.
“The scrutiny of the apparatus only occurred with divergent results, never with consistent results.”
