The scientists at CERN found that neutrinos are travelling 60 billionths of a second quicker than the light speed limit allowed

...a fundamental interconnected whole.   CERN research findings could break a fundamental pillar of science and Einstein's theory of relativity   Breaking the light speed limit is not just some piece of awkward physics bureaucracy. The limit is actually a fundamental reflection of the way space and time are put together. One outcome of travelling faster than light is that the mass and...

Quantum Smell, a controversial theory saying that the way we smell involves a quantum physics effect, has received a boost, following experiments with human subjects

Quantum Smell, a controversial theory saying that the way we smell involves a quantum physics effect, has received a boost, following experiments with human subjects. The theory challenges the notion that our sense of smell depends only on the shapes of molecules we sniff in the air. Instead, it suggests that the molecules’ vibrations are responsible. A way to test it is with two molecules...

...PERA, had wanted Prof. Antonio Ereditato to resign. Earlier in March, a repeat experiment found that the particles, known as neutrinos, did not exceed light speed. When the results from the OPERA group at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory in Italy were first published last year, they shocked the world, threatening to upend a century of physics as well as relativity theory – which holds t...

Supersymmetry, or SUSY, has gained popularity as a way to explain some of the inconsistencies in the traditional theory of subatomic physics known as the Standard Model

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have detected one of the rarest particle decays seen in Nature. The finding deals a significant blow to the theory of physics known as supersymmetry. Many researchers had hoped the LHC would have confirmed this by now. Supersymmetry, or SUSY, has gained popularity as a way to explain some of the inconsistencies in the traditional theory of subatomic...

Physicists from CERN, Swiss, ran again the test that had proved the theory of relativity was wrong – and broke the speed of light for a second time. Scientists of the Large Hadron Collider sent another beam of subatomic particles over 450 miles to a laboratory in Gran Sasso in the Italian Alps. And after running the modified follow-up test 20 times, the scientists recorded exactly the same result...

A new experiment repeating the test of the speed of neutrinos has found that the subatomic particles do not travel faster than light. Results announced in September suggested that neutrinos can exceed light speed, but were met with skepticism as that would upend Einstein’s theory of relativity. A test run by a different group, ICARUS,  at the same laboratory has now clocked them travelling...
