U.S.-based Fermilab to try and break speed of light

U.S.-based particle accelerator Fermilab said it would conduct tests that investigate whether neutrino particles can travel faster than the speed of light, a feat the European research center CERN recently claimed to have achieved. If the findings are upheld, it could fundamentally rewrite humanity’s understanding of physics, proving that Albert…
