Scientists Back Off, Neutrinos Were Not Clocked At Speeds Faster Than Light

We're a few days late on this news, but because we've focused on neutrinos that may have moved faster than the speed of light before, we thought it only fair to bring you the news:

The team of Italian scientists running an experiment called OPERA, who said they had clocked neutrinos moving faster than light, have come to terms with their findings: Their experiment does not challenge a very basic tenant of physics.

According to the New Scientist, the researchers made the admission during the Neutrino 2012 conference in Kyoto on Friday. Neutrinos, the scientists said, move very close to the speed of light.
