    Lol. If I was a cynic I'd say that CERN will make a bid for further funding to investigate the anomaly.

    Methinks someone has put the decimal point in the wrong place.

    time travel has always been possible but only if you have no mass LOL. My question is if the sub atomic particles were faster than light did they know the results before conducting the experiment? LOL

    I always read about these things & the collider, fascinating stuff, was only reading updates on this other day, now this is being questioned, here we go another argument in that community.

    What is also mind bloggling is the cost of the experiments, hundreds of millions.
