You know, sometimes it is the details that get you. You know, you forget that one little detail that ends up being so important that, if you had not taken it into account, ends up throwing your entire project into disarray. Well, a week ago, the world went wild over news that CERN had found that neutrinos travel faster than light.
You know, neutrinos, those little things that are used on Star Trek to, well, uncover cloaked ships. Yeah, those thingies. Well, apparently they do not go faster than light.
Scientists at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands may have figured out why they appeared to go fater than light. . .the GPS satellites used to measure the comings and goings of the neutrinos are also subject to Einsteinian effects because they were in motion relative to the experiment, and someone forgot to take that into account. When taken into account, the error in the calculations is about, um, 64 nanoseconds…or just how fast a neutrino was suppose to be going above the speed of light.
Of course, this does not effect warp drive since what that is based upon is the notion that one could bend space/time to alter the speed of light in an envelope around a starship.
