    I really hope it's wrong when more results come in. But since a neutrino could pass through most matter almost unaffected, it could be massless. Einstein's lightspeed limit only applied to objects that had mass, so theoretically space could travel FTL.

    But we're not gonna make any spaceships any sooner. It's only by a few nanoseconds for fuck's sake.

    You worded it like a conclusion was come to. How dissapointing.

    How fortunate it wasn't confirmed. Fucking neutrinos....
