The OPERA experiment released a paper that emphasizing Neutrinos travels faster than the light. The OPERA team during on its initial coverage incredibly figures out that a Neutrinos traveling beyond the speed of the light. What an effort to make such experiment become accurate. Distance errors, time of flight errors and the timing of neutrino production are the three sources to measure the such timing. In a small portion of paper the neutrinos was discussed on how those potential errors be deducted. Then the study of these errors continued until such announcement that neutrinos is faster than the speed of the light.
Through proton beam the neutrinos are produced. By hitting the fixed target by the protons the target will produce unbalanced particles which will eventually releases neutrinos.
OPERA team calculated the difference between the speed of the light and the speed of the neutrinos. There’s 60ns gap between the arrival and speed of light.
There are many reasons why such experiment would only lead to skepticism. Example of this is the GPS signal, the neutrino speeds acquired from the supernova, etc. If this experiment will be justified as faster than the speed of light meaning it is the end of Einstein’s theory.
The journey, because they pass through matter completely unscathed whereas the others do not. The now pure neutrino beam takes less than 3 milliseconds to travel the 730km between CERN and Gran Sasso, and the neutrinos are detected by apparatus belonging to the OPERA experiment, consisting of around 150,000 bricks of photographic film interleaved with lead plates. In the meantime, the physics community will be looking through the paper, trying to spot unaccounted for sources of error. There are two other similar neutrino detectors in use—T2K and MINOS—and they’ll undoubtedly be looking into working out the timing of their hardware with the same sort of thoroughness OPERA has.
The OPERA team will be having a field day, they will try to study further their experiment and eliminate the potential errors of the experiment. It will take more years to have a chance to see among ourselves the so called faster than the speed of light.
