Research Paper On Neutrinos

Decent Essays
During September of 2011, a group of scientists worked on an experiment called OPERA and claimed to have discovered a groundbreaking result. The OPERA experiment measured the velocity of an extremely fast particle with the name, Neutrinos. The result that was so groundbreaking was that the velocity of Neutrinos was faster than the velocity of light. The difference in velocity between a light beam and a Neutrinos particle is very small. If they raced to the moon and back a million times, the neutrinos particle would win by about a minute (“Breaking the Universal”, 1). The scientists tested Neutrinos velocity again in November and the results were the same. Scientists were worried about the results because Albert Einstein once argued that the
