Other Scientists Confirming Neutrino Experiment

While the original discovery by a group of scientists that neutrinos travel faster than the speed of light has had much doubt in the scientific community, similar results experienced by other groups performing the same experiment has begun to erase more of those doubts. The Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics has confirmed the original finding by replicating the experiment with an all-new batch of neutrinos.

While this group has removed one possible source of error in redesigning the neutrino beam, other sources of error still create implications that both findings could still be wrong.

If this does turn out to be true, it has the potential to significantly change the scientific community and Laws of Physics.
