New Results From LHC/ light speed project

    Just wondering people's opinions if this is true?

    Is it enough evidence to conclude this (not yet obviously), but do you feel the evidence might be valid?

    Lastly what would be the implications if it was true?

    I was also wondering if anyone had any articles related to near/ faster than light particles, I might do this for my Physics 11 class (grade 11 physics). I have had a fairly educated backgroud in this area through personal study and will recognize most of the formulas.

    Any input would be appreciated,

    BT

    There is already a thread on this topic and the mods will presumably lock this one and point you to the other one.

    The consensus is that this will prove to be measurement error.

    There are several other threads here, including https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=532620".. It would have been wise to have looked to see if one existed before starting yet another one. Oh...and this has nothing whatsoever to do with the LHC.
