Physicist behind `faster-than-light` test resigns

An Italian physicist at the head of a team that made a cautious but hugely controversial claim that neutrinos may travel faster than the speed of light today resigned following calls for his dismissal.

Neutrino transformations may reveal matter secrets

A new discovery by scientists provides a crucial key to understanding how neutrinos, ghostly particles with multiple personalities, change identity and may help shed light on why matter exists in the universe.

Elusive neutrinos being measured more precisely

The detector probes matter at the most fundamental level and provides a powerful tool for directly observing the sun`s composition.

CERN claims faster-than-light particle measured

Scientists at the world`s largest physics lab say they have clocked subatomic particles traveling faster than light. If that`s true, it would break — if not severely twist — a fundamental pillar of physics.
