Einstein was one of the greatest minds of our time. E = mc2 was probably one of the greatest breakthroughs of the 20th century, and it was simple. Yet Einstein said that when he gave the theory of relativity to the academics he no longer understood it.
One of the fundamentals we received from this theory is that nothing travels faster than the speed of light, or does it?
In September 2011 researchers working in one of the world’s largest physics laboratories, under a mountain in central Italy, have recorded particles travelling at a speed that is supposedly forbidden by Einstein’s theory of special relativity.
Scientists at the Gran Sasso facility have found a way of a way to send information back in time, blurring the line between past and present and wreaking havoc with the fundamental principle of cause and effect.
Researchers on the OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tracking Apparatus) experiment recorded the arrival times of ghostly subatomic particles called neutrinos sent from CERN on a 730km journey through the Earth to the Gran Sasso lab.
The trip would take a beam of light 2.4 milliseconds to complete, but after running the experiment for three years and timing the arrival of 15,000 neutrinos, the scientists discovered that the particles arrived at Gran Sasso sixty billionths of a second earlier, with an error margin of plus or minus 10 billionths of a second.
The measurement amounts to the neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light by a fraction of 20 parts per million. The result is so unlikely that even the research team has been cautious with its interpretation.
The fact remains that if what they have found in September 2011 is correct then this means that we have a fundamental difference in the way we see quantum physics, unified theory and less technically – the world.
What this result actually means is that – ‘The result of something may not be as linked to the cause as we have thought’.
In simple and ridiculous terms if you place your hand into a flame and burn it, your burns may not be the result of placing your hand in a flame.
This challenge to Einstein’s theory in more layman’s terms means that Quantum exists. That there is a thought that is faster than light, than can travel over untold distances and have a result at the other end that is simply unexplainable in today’s science. Dr Michio Kaku states that this new information turned up by the above experiment proves that something moves faster than light, but does not yet prove it’s use to us. There is much more we don’t know than that which we do know.
