CERN Faster Than Light – ls Time Possible? According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research located in Geneva on the Swiss-France border, they have measured a neutrino particle going 50-70 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light. According to Einstein’s Theory of relativity, this is not possible. According to Einstein’s E=MC2 theory, the faster something moves through space, the more time slows down. So, at one point, when you travel faster than light speed, you will actually be going backward in time. Cern has asked Japan and U.S. experts to corroborate their findings. Cern is also home to the particle accelerator or “collider”, which enables them to test the speed at which these neutrinos travel.
