Speed of light 'broken' at CERN, scientists claim
It was Albert Einstein, no less, who proposed more than 100 years ago that nothing could travel faster than the speed of light. But last night it emerged that the man who laid the foundations for the laws of nature may have been wrong.
The science world was left in shock when workers at the world’s largest physics lab announced they had recorded subatomic particles travelling faster than the speed of light.
If the findings are proven to be accurate, they would overturn one of the pillars of the Standard Model of physics, which explains the way the universe and everything within it works.
