Has the discovery of particles traveling faster than the speed of light had any more backing or refuting? A Los Angeles Times Article talked of a repeat of the experiment that does not match the same speed. However in a BBC article claims they repeated the experiment with the same speed. Now I'm confused:confused:

I would provide links but my post count is not high enough.

I believe it has been shown the experiment that suggested the existence of FTL neutrinos was flawed due to a hardware malfunction (loose cable).

Right. It was a loose fiber optic cable, to be exact.
