Are researchers working in one of the world’s largest physics laboratories, under a mountain in central Italy, bringing extra-dimensional time travel one step closer to reality? Their three-year experiment clocked neutrinos breaking the space-time laws of physics as we know them, traveling faster than the speed of light. Could this could be proof that neutinos are traveling through extra dimensions?
Neutrinos are mysterious particles to begin with. They come in three flavors, all with near-zero mass and no electric charge. They pass through almost any material as though it didn’t exist and apparently make very pretty light pictures. Neutrinos don’t all come from Italy, mostly they come from the sun and other nuclear reactions, but they do call Italy home, ever since Enrico Fermi stepped up to be their particle daddy, giving them the name “neutrino,” in Italian meaning, “Little Neutral One.”
But now the little neutral ones are also challenging the space-time laws of physics. Scientists at the Opera (Oscillation Project with Emulsion tRacking Apparatus) experiment in Gran Sasso, Italy, found that beams of neutrinos sent to its detectors from Cern, 730km away in Geneva, arrived earlier than they should have at faster than light speed.
So did these crafty little particles, in a hurry to get home, take a little shortcut through a warped fifth dimension?
Scientists at Dortmund University in Germany seem to think so. Heinrich Paes, a physicist at Dortmund University, has gone on record with this theory. Is he right? If so does this mark the beginning of an experimental time-travel race among particle physicists around the world? For instance what does this mean for Eloi Cole’s Time Travel subway system experiments based on another subatomic particle, called Higgs Singlets, which are currently underway in Switzerland? http://sethonsurvival.com/?p=2184
Only time will tell.
