Challenging Einstein is usually a losing venture

"Betting against Einstein and his theory of relativity is a way to go broke"

))))---- ¤ Theory Of Relativity ¤ ----

For more than a century, everyone from Physicists to the Nazi Party of Hitler has encouraged the publication that tried to de-throne the "Theory of Relativity" of Albert Einstein without any success.

The recent paper published from the project "OPERA" of CERN (at present the largest physics lab at the French-Swiss border) about the "faster than light" propagation of neutrinos or "ghost particles" again tries to topple the world of relativity which limits the cosmological speed as the speed of light.

The ripples created in the physics world is clearly skeptical about the datas obtained by the CERN laboratory. There is a long history of experimental results that at first seem to contradict relativity, only later to be found to fit neatly with the theory Albert Einstein loved for its simplicity and elegance.

So is it possible for neutrinos which is a fundamental particle having tiny mass and neutral electrical charge to travel faster than light? Nobody knows, but the laboratory data indicates that it really happened when neutrinos outperformed photons of light by nearly 60 nano-seconds.

To be continued....
