On the heels of reports that the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland had discovered particles called neutrinos travelling at speeds faster than light, the physicists there are already happily talking to the media about what these new findings might mean for humanity. One of the most notable possibilities that they are discussing is the advent of time travel that could come as result of these groundbreaking findings. Jeff Forshaw, a professor of particle physics at Britain’s Manchester University, told the Reuters news service that this makes possible the idea of “sending information into the past.” That sounds like opening the cosmic door for time travel to us here at Common Sense Conspiracy.
This could be a revolution in physics like never before seen in humanity, and yet, it is only meagerly reported in the media. The scientists at CERN seem more than happy to talk about their impressive findings, but the appetite of the media seems less than excited. What do you think?
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→
