The particles, called "neutrinos," were clocked at, oh, something above 299,792,458
But now, say some scientists at an outfit called "ICARUS," this can't be because any particles that traveled faster than the speed of light would have to emit a certain kind of radiation. But these particles don't. Therefore, they couldn't have traveled faster than the speed of light.
Leave it to a group named "ICARUS" to cause this claim to flame out when it got too close to a new discovery.
Anyway, the ICARUS folks are saying that the scientific stopwatches that measured this must have been measuring incorrectly. We'll see.
I say these neutrinos should have to follow the laws of nature like the rest of us.
