CERN’s Loose Cable To Blame For Proving Einstein Wrong

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 26, 2012

Note to Einstein naysayers – check your equipment before trying to prove the chief geek wrong.

A loose wire may be to blame for CERN’s claim late last year that Einstein’s theory of special relativity, proposed in 1905, was actually incorrect.

The theory states that nothing in the universe can travel faster than the speed of light in a vacuum.

It took just 2.3 milliseconds for light to travel between the Geneva and Gran Sasso laboratories.

CERN showed that the accepted speed of light could be broken by 60 nanoseconds, or more precisely that neutrinos arrived 60 nanoseconds too early than if they were travelling at the speed of light, breaking the speed of light itself by 0.00248%. Two experiments reached the same conclusion.

The Telegraph reports that a loose wire at CERN might mean Einstein is not wrong. Read the rest of this entry »
