One of the basic principles of physics might be wrong! We are talking about Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity who says that nothing can travel in the Universe with a speed bigger than the speed of light.
And that speed is 299,792 km per second. However CERN scientists claim that they discovered a subatomic particle that travels with superior speeds. That particle allegedly traveled with 60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light.
“We have found no instrumental effect that might explain the results of these measuring” Antonio Eraditato, Berna University researcher said. Researchers spent months verifying the results to make sure there is no room for errors.
United States physics laboratories will also conduct experiments to verify the result.
The announcement was received with skepticism by other scientists who said that the calculations or measuring were faulted.
However, if the discovery proves to be real it will forever revolutionize the world of physics. Experts who made the announcement are working in the biggest physics laboratory in the world.
