. . . Albert Einstein. Officials at CERN have admitted that last year's 'discovery' of faster than light neutrinos was an error in equipment.
But, we knew that all along, right?

Always suspected it would turn out that way. I'm still convinced to light barrier can be broken artificially. But we don't understand near enough yet. Like astronomy, when it only was only 100 years old how little had we as a species understood the universe around us. Based on that, it could be millenia before we get even close to such an achievement. Although, it may just be a few centuries as we are a bit quicker on the uptake in the space age.
PS. Great topic Terry.

What is the meaning of this statement " faulty kit was to blame." ?
European for technical equipment faults.
Do they not have quality control? I would place the error on "H.E." Human Error. i sort of assumed it was the Goat. Thanks for the enlightenment, I needed that.
Now I've had my coffee, sorry about the right brain gestures. I know these things can be gigantic in complexity. Thanks for airing your findings.
