Interestingly it now seems that Fermilab (Chicago) might've made the discoveryfirst, a coupla years ago Here's the relevant quotes from an interview in the UK's Daily Telegraph: http://tinyurl.com/3autbnh ----- Before any conclusions can be drawn, the CERN team's results will be checked by scientists across the globe including at Fermilab near Chicago, where a similar experiment known as Minos is based. Prof. Thomas - the co-spokesperson for the Minos project - said the team had thrown up similar results several years ago but had discounted them because the possible margin of error was too high. She said: "Our errors were rather large so we dismissed it. Nothing is further from your belief than that the results might be correct. When I heard about the Cern results my first thought was that they must be wrong, there must be something they have not taken into account." ..."We will repeat our experiment with higher precision, hopefully in the next six months. The Fermilab team will then begin a second stage of their experiment, called Minos Plus, which is even more similar to the Cern trial and will deliver results accurate to one nanosecond, she said." ----- Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
