Conclusion: Neutrinos Observe Einstein's Speed Limit

Paolo Lombardi INFN-MI
The Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics, located nearly a mile below the surface of the Gran Sasso mountains about 60 miles outside of Rome, detects tiny particles called neutrinos.

The final nail in the coffin may have been dealt to the idea that neutrino particles can travel faster than light.
The same lab that first reported the shocking results last September, which could have upended much of modern physics, has now reported that the subatomic particles called neutrinos "respect the cosmic speed limit."
Physicist Sergio Bertolucci, research director at Switzerland's CERN physics lab, presented the results Friday at the 25th International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics in Kyoto, Japan.
