Neutrinos 4
Background image of page 4
Neutrinos and the Speed of Light On Friday, the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced an observation of neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light Presumably, velocities greater than c are forbidden by Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity The claimed effect in 730 km is ~60±10 ns. Such a result requires timing accuracy of ~5 ns and distance accuracy of ~1 m. 5
