So much for time travel. The experiments that seemed to detect particles moving faster than the speed of light were faulty. A source close to the CERN experiment, which would have upended Einstein’s theory of special relativity, tells the journal Science that “a bad connection between a GPS unit and a computer may be to blame.” CERN scientists claimed that they recorded neutrinos arriving 60 nanoseconds earlier than light, but Science says that gap appears to come from a faulty fiber-optic cable. “After tightening the connection and then measuring the time it takes data to travel the length of the fiber, researchers found that the data arrive 60 nanoseconds earlier than assumed,” reads the report.
