FTL – Faster than light

Charan asked: In a recent research,it was found experimentally that nutreinos are faster than light.In that case,Einstein’s Relativistic mechanics don’t work.What tpe of mechanics are applied in that case?

Answer:

There was a news about  faster than light by neutrinos recently by the scientists of CERN which they corrected later explaining that the news wa a result of mistake in calculation caused by the error in time interval reporting.

The scientists (and others too) are not yet ready to accept a result of faster than light travel by a material particle. So, if such an observation is reported, the scientific community is to be prepared with sufficient theoretical background to explain contrary to the Theory of Relativity.
