Cern invites scrutiny of faster-than-light particles

Cern, the Switzerland-based particle physics lab, has released a data set for further scrutiny after the results of an experiment showed particles beating the speed of light.

The data, derived from the OPERA experiment involving neutrinos in Cern’s San Grasso laboratory, showed the particles passing the facility a fraction too early. In a statement released along with the data on 23 September Cern said the measurements were “at odds with well-established laws of nature”.
