One of the very pillars of physics and Einstein's theory of relativity - that nothing can go faster than the speed of light - was rocked Thursday, Sep 22, 2011 by new findings from one of the world's foremost laboratories [CNRS]. (see also FULL : Neutrinos are faster than light .. The OPERA experiment presentation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kj6Sf... )
European researchers said they clocked an oddball type of subatomic particle called a neutrino going faster than the 186,282 miles per second that has long been considered the cosmic speed limit.

Einstein never has proven, but only made the assumption, that the speed of light is the maximum obtainable speed of all items in our universe. The CERN OPERA experiment, demonstrating that muon neutrinos do travel faster than light has unbelievable profound consequences. All the works of physics, books articles etc. which rely on Einsteins assumption can be safely tossed into the dumpster ... Thats quite a few. Also theoretical departments are forced into a renewed kick-start and move back to the drawing boards, which include string theory, black holes, dark matter and renewed interpretations of astronomical measurements data. That something was seriously wrong in the field of Physics had become clear after highly critical books on string theory had been published in 2006/2007 :
