Scientists will rerun the experiment that produced results suggesting faster-than-light travel.
The results recorded last month that allegedly demonstrated neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light were met with widespread skepticism, it's a feat that appears to defy the laws of physics and that should be impossible. Now in a bid to confirm the findings scientists will repeat the experiment with some minor tweaks in order to try and recreate those results.
Researchers at Cern, the world's largest laboratory in Switzerland, announced last month that tiny neutrinos had been observed travelling marginally faster than light.
