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…

Particles travel faster than light, say scientists

PARIS — Physicists reported Thursday that sub-atomic particles called neutrinos can travel faster than light, a finding that — if verified — would blast a hole in Einstein’s theory of relativity. In experiments conducted between the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland and a laboratory in Italy, the…

CERN collider restarts search for cosmic mysteries

GENEVA (Reuters) – CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is gearing up to resume full-speed particle collisions next month aimed at resolving key mysteries of the universe, scientists and engineers at the research center said on Monday. They reported that the giant subterranean machine was in fine shape after a 10-week…
