Reseachers at CERN have made an astounding 'discovery' with potential to upheaval theoretical physics. In series of experiments the travel time of neutrino particles over a known distance was measured. The computed speed of particles was found to be significantly greater than speed of light and hence contradicting Einsteins theory of relativity which states that the speed of light is the ultimate speed and that no particle can surpass the limit. Naturally the reseachers are baffled and termed the results as ' crazy' cause the consequences for theoretical physics are pretty serious. Time will tell.
