Neutrinos aren’t slowing down
I wasn’t the only one who had suspicions about waveform matching in the OPERA experiment:
However, “A new measurement of the neutrino speed is being conducted using 2 ns long bunches spaced by 500 ns from the CNGS beam. In such a measurement the effects discussed here would no longer apply.”
According to rumors (http://twitter.com/#!/jsheltino), those measurements have been conducted, and the neutrinos are still arriving too early!
Update: same rumor was also leaked to Russian media by Natalia Polukhina (an OPERA Collaboration Board member).
Update: official word: http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2011/PR19.11E.html
