Today, the CERN laboratory in Switzerland publicly announced that tiny (even for a
quantum physicist’s standards) particles called neutrinos were completing their underground journey faster than the physicists expected. How fast you say? A few kilometers per hour. Not exactly. These quantum particles are doing something that up until now has never been witnessed by human beings. That’s right…they are moving faster than the speed of light.
The implications of this find if it is confirmed by other scientists are immense. Einstein’s theory about the barrier for speed restricts humanity from being able to engage in all sorts of technologies before only envisioned in science fiction novels. That includes time travel and the ability to one day visit other stars and galaxies. Continue reading Science Fiction No More — CERN Trumps Einstein→
As the day of the supposed alignment that could end with the comet Elenin striking Earth approaches, conspiracy theory websites, forums, and message boards are lighting up with chatter that ranges from significant to completely maniacal. As always, Common Sense Conspiracy takes a look at some of these and tries to see if we can find a fact trail, a means of documenting some of the claims with factual evidence.
First of all, it has been reported that a White House letter leaked to the public expressed a concern that our government agencies (and the rest of the Earth for that matter) should be prepared in the case of a cataclysmic comet impacting the Earth. According to the reports, the government has long considered an asteroid collision as a possible disaster, but the possibility of a comet striking Earth has been mostly overlooked. The timing of the letter is the interesting part. This letter supposedly leaked in October 2010. This is interesting because it is two months from when the comet Elenin was discovered and all of the chaos and confusion began.
