To think of all the starving people in the world and the good use that money could have gone to instead of the collider. :roll:

Problems with lab's GPS time stamp and a cable:

Einstein May or May not be right, they recorded particles travelling faster than the speed of light, but due to the two problems they don't know now if they did, travel faster or not. new result expected in May after problems fixed.

Quote: "You don't make a living betting against Albert Einstein, so you've got to be incredibly careful. This is just what happens when you work with modern high technology.

"In a giant experiment with hundreds of people looking, there's always a little cable, a little wire that if you just touch it or jiggle it, it can throw off your signal.

And it is very subtle." from University of Auckland physicist David Krofcheck

More here: Einstein may be right after all

"Hey you stop jiggling that cable......" :lol:
