Journal club returns this Thursday (29th September) at 20:10 UK time (19:10 UT), and we’re going to be discussing last week’s intriguing faster-than-light neutrinos story.
The paper behind the headlines is Measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA detector in the CNGS beam, and normally this post would try to give a brief summary of it. However, this story has received so much great, insightful, coverage in the past few days that I’m just going to link to some posts that I’ve found useful in trying to figure out the facts of the apparent discovery. It’s not meant to be an exhaustive list and if there’s a good write-up that you’ve seen please leave it in the comments. Oh, and don’t forget to join in the discussion on Thursday!
