Krauthammer: "All of modern physics is wrong"
I don't agree with Charles Krauthammer's political POV, but I give him credit for telling some uncomfortable truths in his latest op-ed piece which discusses the CERN "discovery of a particle that can travel faster than light." He points out the enormity of the ramifications of the discovery not only for physics, but for all of standard cosmology.

Krauthammer observes, "...Einstein’s relativity — a theory of uncommon beauty upon which all of physics has been built for 100 years — is wrong. Not just inaccurate. Not just flawed. But deeply, fundamentally, indescribably wrong.

It means that the 'standard model' of subatomic particles that stands at the center of all modern physics is wrong.

Nor does it stop there. This will not just overthrow physics. Astronomy and cosmology measure time and distance in the universe on the assumption of light speed as the cosmic limit. Their foundations will shake as well."


The article in full may be read here:

Given the valid skepticism Krauthammer is expressing toward the standard cosmology, I'm hoping someone will at least point him in the direction of an alternative, like this:

The man has a valid point.

Geez what an alarmist! Just because nutrinos go slightly faster than light, it doesn't change the speed of light, what all those measurements are made by. Nutrinos are useless, but light is usable. Large scale and small scale physics are already out of wack with each other. [quantum vs Einstein's relativity]. That's why string theory tries to unite them.

It won't change the fact that the faster one travels the more time slows down.

Re: Krauthammer: "All of modern physics is wrong"
Actually with the theory of the alcubiere drive i think thats whats it's called. That in the big bang and even now space it self is expanding faster than light. So if we just have anything in a given space go faster than light. And the people in that space technicaly arent going faster than light time dilation dosent happen.

Re: Krauthammer: "All of modern physics is wrong"
einstein already had this covered in 1905!!

He published 2 theories of relativity.

the special theory of relativity and the general theory of relativity.

In the special theory of relativity Energy=Mass meaning there is no speed limit on light.

the speed limit of light comes from the general theory of relativity which is the infamous E=Mc2.

basically Einstein is still the man along with Newton, Galileo, Feynman etc. etc. We are just moving into his special theory of relativity which he knew would be happening back in the early 20th century which is why he made 2 theories of relativity.

if you want to track all the amazing physics stuff that is happening I would suggest reading all the articles on www.physorg.com everyday, lots of amazing and marvelous things happening right now!!

It's amazing how someone can say something like "All of modern physics is wrong" and don't offer any explanation to back him up, when he is really using the "modern physics" to type on his laptop.

Re: Krauthammer: "All of modern physics is wrong"
einsteins theory stated there was a barrier that wont permit matter to go faster than light
it also implyed if a particle was already going faster than light it wouldnt be able to slow down below the speed of light

he theoried that if an object could be accelerated to faster than light it would be able to arrive before it left (from the observers point of view)
it also meant if an object was going faster you wouldnt be able to see it (meaning it didnt arrive before it left)

so these particles wont change a whole bunch of anything the man said (its been tested for close to 100 years and not 1 crack has been found)

According to Einstein, Rape is not possible..

Why?

A Female with her skirt pulled up can travel much faster than a Male with pulled down trousers.

It would have been an odd result, had it been correct - but themeasurements were wrong becaus the night shift man had stumpled on cable ... because of the loose cable neutrinos appeared too fast ... psysics was right after all
