Finding faster-than-light particles by weighing them

  • The new claim of faster-than-light neutrinos is based on a much more sensitive method than measuring their speed, namely by finding their mass.
  • The result relies on tachyons having an imaginary mass, or a negative mass squared.
  • This is in direct conflict as relatively theory says it is impossible for anything to accelerate beyond the speed of light because of the infinite energy required.
