Einstein still prevails

Late last year researchers at CERN raised some eyebrows when they announced that they had discovered evidence of neutrinos traveling faster than light. That discovery would've voided Einstein's theory of relativity. Later investigation determined that a faulty cable was likely the cause of the believed to be faster than light observation.

CERN has now conducted a second experiment that was a virtual duplicate of the original called Icarus. The researchers announced that Icarus did not see faster than light neutrinos. A third experiment is set for later this year to definitively answer the question of whether or not neutrinos can travel faster than the speed of light.
