Final Nail in FTL Neutrinos’ Coffin

I’ve previously discussed the case of possibly-faster-than-light (FTL) neutrinos here, here, here, and here. But Scientific American put out an article that is pretty much the final word.

It looks like it was an error in the timing system. The OPERA installation (and other labs around the world) have recreated the experiment, and none have recorded FTL speeds. Oh well. This is good science. Hypothesis, test, analyze, repeat. I would have loved to have seen FTL neutrinos, but I’ll take slow, measured progress. Onto the next great experiment.
