The CERN lab near Geneva appeared to contradict Albert Einstein's 1905 Special Theory of Relativity last year when they reported that sub-atomic particles called neutrinos could travel fractionally faster than light.
Einstein's special theory of relativity says such speeds shouldn't be attainable.
The CERN research institute near Geneva said measurements over three years had shown neutrinos pumped to a receiver in Gran Sasso, Italy, had arrived 60 nanoseconds sooner than light would have done -- a tiny difference that could nonetheless undermine Albert Einstein's 1905 special theory of relativity.
That idea was dismissed more than 100 years ago with the creation of Einstein's special theory of relativity.
50 Paperback QC173 A specialist in quantum mechanics and general relativity, Helliwell (emeritus physics, Harvey Mudd College) finds that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is a superb place to begin a serious study of physics because, while being useful in many practical problems and the most accessible to 20th-century revolutions, it also demonstrates the strangeness and counter-intuitivity of modern physics.
His Special Theory of Relativity was published in 1905.
It first left the realm of science fiction with the prediction in Albert Einstein's special theory of relativity of 'time dilation', the fact that time is not absolute but depends on the relative motion of observers.
