Trying to explain speed

You might recall an event that occurred only three weeks ago that some heralded as new physics, an upending of conventional thought, and the introduction to a new world hard to comprehend.  I’m not referring to the Facebook update. I’m referring to CERN’s discovery of neutrinos that measured speeds exceeding the speed of light.  I wrote a tongue-in-cheek post that day but I really did, and do, find it fascinating.  Despite the fact I suspect most of the world has moved on and has already forgotten about those invisible neutrinos, I intend to stay tuned in.

Herewith, this article from Wired today that offers up all kinds of mundane explanations for the speedy neutrinos. Scientists are hard at work seeking reason when only passion is apparent.  We’ll see where this goes.  I’ll keep you posted.  🙂

I get jazzed by automation, big data, and blockchain tech. Business, technology, and fitness are things I understand. Scotch, wine, food, and fiction are things I appreciate.
