Einstein was right after all.
A mistake caused physicists to conclude erroneously that neutrinos could travel faster than the speed of light, according to a Wednesday report in ScienceInsider.
Physicists in September made a controversial splash when they announced that the subatomic particles could travel faster than the speed of light, a conjecture that Albert Einstein said could never happen.
Technology could be to blame, specifically a bad connection between a GPS unit and a computer that would explain why the neutrino traveled 60 nanoseconds faster than expected.
The report included unnamed sources who were familiar with the experiment.
