Loose Cable Tights the Brains: No Faster Than Light Particle Exists! Einstein Laughs at CERN
OMG! What the hell is going on in CERN Labs? A few weeks ago, the researchers at CERN proudly told the world that they had succeeded in finding faster than light particles called “Neutrinos”. They also claimed that if further investigation confirms the existence of “neutrinos”, it would demolish the entire theory of relativity which was presented by world’s most genius scientist “Albert Einstein”.
Now the same scientists ridiculously announce that it was a loose cable only which caused the whole mess worldwide; actually no faster than light particle exists in nature and the Einstein’s theory of relativity is still valid and workable. On watching the entire situation, Einstein’s soul will be laughing at scientists working at CERN who forget to check a “cable” before making such a huge claim which stirred the world, vigorously.
Researchers at CERN have found out that a bad fiber-optics link between a GPS unit and a computer was causing the 60 nanosecond timing discrepancy that was driving everyone mad. Once they realized this, the cable was tightened and the difference was gone. Yes, the faster-than-light neutrinos are not real (at least, we haven’t detected them if they exist) and the Universe can breathe once again and keep destroying galactic wonders.
Apparently, the 60 nanosecond difference comes from the time it took to the data to travel through the cable, which fully accounts for the unexplainable 60 nanosecond neutrino speedup.
World’s Most Hilarious Experiment:
The story begin with the results of a 3-year experiment published by the scientists those send 16000 neutrinos packets from CERN Labs (Geneva) to profound facilities of Gran Sasso National Laboratory (Italy). It was an Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus (the OPERA particle detector) which recorded the hits, accordingly.
But the scientists remained stunned when they found that the particles were arriving 60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light.
At that time, the majority of big brains expressed their reservations on the findings presented by the scientists working at CERN. They told the world that Einstein’s theory of relatively was correct enough to believe and nothing can travel with more than speed of light, as the Einstein worked out.
But the folks at CERN didn’t even tried to check their apparatus and cables, instead, they preferred to repeat the experiment and eventually got the same “striking” results. It further encouraged them to tell the world excitedly about their correct discovery; “neutrinos” can travel with a speed more than light particles.
But when they cooled down and reviewed on the whole scenario, they came to know that it was just a loose cable which tighten their brains …just a loose cable….how funny guys!
Though, the researcher at CERN promised to test the whole things again, we think that the game is over and mystery has been solved …OMG!
