Why not use ns-pulses before Faster-than-Light claim?

New FtL experiment to use nanosecond pulses The previous experiment with microsecond pulses (1000ns) that measured the average delay time at ~60ns was very dependent on the statistical analysis and sensitive to detection bias (later detections being slightly less probable than … Continue reading

Neutrinos do Cherenkov, don’t they?

CERN theorists seem baffled, but it’s no surprise that standard physics predicts supraluminal (FtL) neutrinos to slow down via Cherenkov radiation analogous to FtL charged particles, although Cohen & Glashow call it bremstrahlung of electron-positron pairs. Cherenkov radiation is best depicted by analogy with … Continue reading
