"Crazy" neutrino find has many physicistsskeptical, still backing Einstein.
If confirmed, the astonishing claim would upend a cardinal rule of physics established by Albert Einstein nearly a century ago. Neutrinos—ghostly subatomic particles—may have been observed traveling faster than the speed of light, scientists announced this week.

"If that happens, the concept of causality becomes ambiguous, and that would cause a great deal of trouble." "If things travel faster than the speed of light, A can cause B, [but] B can also cause A," Parke said. According to Goldberg's calculations, if neutrinos travel faster than light by the amount the OPERA team claims, then neutrinos from that supernova should have been detected in 1984—three years before the photons.Relativity Still Very Close to Right
