Faster than light measurement shocks physicists - CBS NewsGoing faster than light is something that is just not supposed to happen, according to Einstein's 1905 special theory of relativity. The speed of light — 186,282 miles per second — has long been considered a cosmic speed limit.
The team — a collaboration between France's National Institute for Nuclear and Particle Physics Research and Italy's Gran Sasso National Laboratory — fired a neutrino beam 454 miles underground from Geneva to Italy.
They found it traveled 60 nanoseconds faster than light. That's sixty billionth of a second, a time no human brain could register.
