E ≠ mc²?


I got so shocked by this news (as well as Banned Books Week) that I forgot to write about what might be the most amazing scientific discovery of ... of ... dare I say it? All time?

Einstein is shocked, too.
A team at CERN, the world's largest physics lab, has published results that suggest subatomic particles have gone faster than the speed of light.

The team has published its work so other scientists can determine if there are any mistakes.

If there aren't, one of the pillars of modern science (E=mc²
) may come tumbling down.

A lot of science-fiction literature is based upon the idea that, if the light-speed barrier can be overcome, time travel might theoretically become possible....

It's nice to know what I am doing is possible.
