Neutrino Light Speed Tests Flawed, Says Science Team

By Gary Cutlack on at

A group of Italian scientists have questioned those faster-than-light neutrino test results, claiming that anything moving that fast should lose energy -- but that's not what the original tests showed.

Claiming that they "refute a superluminal interpretation" the team from the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy say the original test results don't support the light speed breaking claims, because no energy was lost by the neutrinos in the original 2010 test.

All this despite the original faster-than-light claims recently being retested and once again stated as a genuine result by the original testers. [The Register]
