Predictions for 2012: How Did They Pan Out?

At the end of last year, I made a series of predictions for world events that would take place in 2012. Being an honest sort of lady, it seems appropriate that I should go back and see how well I … Continue reading

I Guess That’s It

This looks like it’s pretty much the final nail in the coffin of those superluminal neutrinos I loved so well. Alas. Oh well: guess we’re stuck with ten dimensions in string theory, and also no interstellar starships for the forseeable … Continue reading

No Time Travel For You!

It seems that scientists at OPERA may have finally managed to explain-away that superluminal neutrino: According to sources familiar with the experiment, the 60 nanoseconds discrepancy appears to come from a bad connection between a fiber optic cable that connects … Continue reading

FTL Neutrinos, Part 2: What They Don’t Mean

That faster-than-light neutrino still refuses to go away. Granted, this latest experiment doesn’t prove that it really is going faster than c; all that it does is disprove one proposed source of error; it is still entirely possible that some … Continue reading
