Faster than light and time travel into the past.

  1. Sep 24, 2011 #1
    Hey i am new in this forum and just want to share my thoughts with you guyz at the recent finding at CERN .

    If the findings of CERN experiment are correct then does it means that time travel into the past is proved WRONG.?

    Because according to relativity theory if something moves faster than light it would move backword in time.
    So if neutrino's actually moved faster than light (as reported by CERN scientist) then according to relativity theory scientist should have received them at the other end before they actually triggered them, but scientists have not reported anyting like that. So does this mean that moving faster than light does not force to go backword in time.

    (my english is bad, but i think i am able to convey my point ).
