Guess What? Albert Einstein Was Wrong

Friday, September 23, 2011

Back in 1905, Albert Einstein posited that nothing in the universe could travel faster than the speed of light. Light travels at 186,282 miles per second. Call it the universe’s speed limit.

Guess what? It turns out Albert Einstein, the man who laid the foundations for the laws of nature was wrong.

Scientists working at the massive CERN lab near Geneva — the world’s largest physics lab announced they had recorded subatomic particles called neutrinos, a tiny energy particle, had in fact traveled faster than the barrier of 186,282 miles (299,792 kilometers) per second.

The light barrier has been broken. Welcome to the 21st century.

Antonio Ereditato, spokesman for the researchers, said:

“We have high confidence in our results. We have checked and rechecked for anything that could have distorted our measurements but we found nothing.”

    If neutrinos can somehow be used to send information, communications, TV, and internet will move at speeds far faster than today’s speeds. Imagine: pressing the “Enter” key on your computer and in a blink of an eye, a webpage appears. No voice delays between earth and astronauts in space.

  2. Pechanga says:

    Science should always ask “why?”

    For a century, science lazily accepted Albert Einstein’s theories about time and space and never challenged them. I think somewhere, Einstein must be watching all this and laughing to himself saying, “what took them so long?”

  3. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Hold on there folks…….. all the results are not yet confirmed. However, won’t it be interesting, if Einstein was proven wrong, to see that SCIENCE is willing to reset its values…. while religion , as usual, continues to smolder in ancient values establish many thousands of years ago….by old Bronze Age Cave men…. many of those values which have now been proven to be wrong, but which they refuse to re-adjust…….

  4. Harry says:

    This discovery could propel science into the 21st century and open new doors to the universe.

  5. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    I was thinking, too bad Gene Roddenberry isn’t alive to see this.

    Years ago I saw him on a TV show and he was asked about the inspiration for Star Trek and of course the discussion came around to Warp drive. He said something along the lines of, “One day, faster than light travel will be a reality.”

    This is a development in that direction.

  6. ultragreen says:

    The speed of light isn’t fixed at 186,282 miles per second. Light travels at a slower speed as you approach absolute zero.

  7. Nan Yun says:

    If this is true does it mean time travel is possible? One day, humans will move effortlessly back and ahead along the temporal line of time and space? I want to see Paris in the 1920’s and my parents who were killed by Mao Tse-Tung.

  8. feminazi says:

    This test was so startling that researchers performed it more than 15,000 times to verify their lab findings and in every case, the neutrinos traveled faster than light speed. Amazing.

    Research on E=Mc2 Instead of E=Mm2,The speed of light =22,32,00,00,000 miles per second,Point,Exact value of Pi = π = Goba = Pi = 3.141592653 , and also both research. Look at
    Respected sir,
    My father Shri. Shantaram Bapurao Janorkar has worked out the accurate numerical value of Pi=π,Goba= Pi = 3.141592653 is exact value and also research point:- Evidence of existence of point and it´s from.E=Mc2 formula derived by Hon. Albert Einstein is wrong & it´s evidence proof,E=Mm2 is new formula, The speed of light =22,32,00,00,000 miles per second. Soul:-Evidence of existence of Soul, it´s form and nomenclature.Om,Aatmaa and also both research.
    In mathematic´s the value of Pi = π, which was wrongly known to the mathematician is roughly limitless, in-comprehensible, incalculable, transcendental irrational.Circumference divided by Diameter = magnitude of regular polygon (Roughly circumference) divided by Diameter is wrong. Today’s world class mathematician was assumed that the circumference is a magnitude of regular polygon. (there fore) they do not get exact value of Pi= π, for this my father made whole life time research and calculated the exact value of Pi= π which was 3.141592653 and whole research was made in Marathi (Devnagri) language.
    In 15th of September 1998 publication of Pi=π=Gobacha Swayam Siddha Siddhant Launching ceremony was arranged by me in a city center at Mahan Dist.Akola at 6:00 pm on 15-09-1998. This function was presided over by senior Journalist, Radio and Television reporter late. Shree Dadasaheb Mankar,Dr.K.S.Adhau, Head of Department of Mathematics Amravati University, Amravati Published theorem book. And the launching was over by Hon.Dr.T. M.Karde,(Dean,Faculty of Science, Nagpur University Nagpur, President of Einstin foundation internation,Nagpur) Shree. Bhagwantrao Ingle, President of District Journalist Union, Dr.Mujumdar, Head of department of Engineering Dr.P.D.Krishi Vidyapith,Akola Dr.Burghate, Dr.Asole, Deputy Education Officer,Shri.Wankhade,Adesh Deshpande, Baban Daberao, Prof. Pundkar Dr.Ghorpande, B.D.O. Shri. Borde, were present on dais.
    Hon.Dr.T.M.Karde (International pamed mathematician):- Dr.Karde admitted the new thought about the principal of static & Dynamic is brought by this theorem. In spite of all, he do not comment on this issue instantly, but the assured that, the discussion will be made on the same in next conference certainly.
    Hon.Dr.K.S.Adhau (Head, Department of Mathematics, Amravati University):- Dr.Adhau thought that it would be fast to give any remark on this theorem.
    Hon.Dr.Mujumdar (Head, Department of Engineering Dr.P.D.Krishi Vidyapith, Akola):- Today, this has been provide that research work is not limited to university expert person. But a farmer can also do a research work. There is no end to research work. This research work will guide the future generation.
    Hon.Late Dadasaheb Mankar (Senior Journalist):- Professor Mankar stated that this result is hard work / dedication of 20 years and he expected such Hero should be born from this earth only.
    Hon.N.L.Lakhanpal,Principal Secretary,Higher Technical Education Department, Mantralaya, Mumbai-32 Wrote in the letter DO No.PA1097/NLL/P.I.,Dated:-21May1997 to Hon.Prof.V.S.Ramamurthy,Secretary, Science and Technology Bhavan,Department of Science,Government of India,New Delhi.Since the state Government does not have any such expertise, We would request Government of India to Initiate whatever steps are considered necessary in this matter.
    No one has responded seriously to my father research work. I humbly request to you where in the validity of this claim Can be scientifically established. Whatever steps are considered necessary in this matter. So,I again request you to do needful in this regard.
    Thanking you, Yours faithfully

    But einstine also said anithing isn’t shure some times they may become wrong .its available for his own theory.I think that’s all

  11. ivan dizon says:

    Albert Einstine quoted:

    “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

  12. marco says:

    How fast do the neutrinos go?

  13. Lars David says:

    To ultragreen: Light had a fixed speed in a vacuum. It slows down when passing through matter, and THEN at various temperatures. For example, when a Bowes-Einstein condensate is created, it travels slower than a 20mph, and can be “seen”. When it goes through water, it slows down, and can be witnessed by shooting a laser at an angle through a fish tank. The angle is changed once in the fish tank, but emerges in the exact same angle as it entered when it leaves the tank. But, the difference of the speed in a vacuum at 2,000°K and 0°K is… zero.
