Faster Than the Speed of Light?

Professor Marcus du Sautoy offered a rather sobering view of the results of OPERA on the BBC last night. The BBC iPlayer version is available to view  until the 31st October, follow this link.

Until now I have resisted posting anything about the superluminal speed of neutrinos as measured by OPERA. There are plenty of blogs about this.  All I really want to say is that Marcus du Sautoy does a great job in approaching the topic from a science/maths point of view and does not “fan the flames” of the media hype.  His programme, in my opinion combats some of the hysteria and plain rubbish out there.

Please take the time to watch it.
