faster-than-light particles

Particles which travel faster than the speed of light, thereby refuting Einstein’s theory of special relativity. Proof for existence of what is called the “God particle” has been uncovered at the the Gran Sasso facility in Italy, where particles completed a distance of 730km at a speed sixty billionths of a second earlier than the speed of light. The supposed existence of such particles raises questions about causality, whereby information could potentially be sent back in time.

The faster-than-light particles, also known as neutrinos, have a minuscule mass, no electric charge, and pass through almost any material as though it was not there.
