In “Speed-of-light experiments give baffling result at Cern” (BBC News , September 22, 2011) , Jason Palmer reports,
Neutrinos sent through the ground from Cern toward the Gran Sasso laboratory 732km away seemed to show up a tiny fraction of a second early. nonlocalizability,
The result – which threatens to upend a century of physics – will be put online for scrutiny by other scientists.
“We wanted to find a mistake – trivial mistakes, more complicated mistakes, or nasty effects – and we didn’t,” he told BBC News.
The neutrinos appear to have exceeded the speed of light. So,
The team measured the travel times of neutrino bunches some 15,000 times, and have reached a level of statistical significance that in scientific circles would count as a formal discovery.
Imagine if incredible Darwin claims were treated this carefully …. As if.
In biology, if Darwinism is the problem, rewriting the scene is the solution. Whatever had to happen to prove it would be true … did happen!
Fortunately, physics seems a bit sounder than biology just now. (We are not counting cosmology, which is on the same level as Darwinism. We mean real physics.)
Real physics is sound because we can actually disprove an established idea, on evidence. That’s progress.
