Neutrinos Seen to Travel Merely at C

The ICARUS experiment has measured neutrinos moving at the speed of light in an experiment much like the OPERA collaboration experiment that first seemed to show faster-than-light neutrinos.

From the abstract of the paper posted on the Arxiv . . .

"The result is compatible with the simultaneous arrival of all events with equal speed, the one of light . . . This is in a striking difference with the reported result of OPERA that claimed that high energy neutrinos from CERN should arrive at LNGS about 60 ns earlier than expected from luminal speed."

  1. Anything Carlo Rubbio says should be regarded as twaddle. He is thoroughly dishonest.
