E still equals MC squared, says Exeter Fellow
Professor Frank Close, Emeritus Fellow of Exeter College, has published an article in The Guardian arguing that despite recent suggestions from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (known as CERN) that neutrinos may be able to travel faster than the speed of light, Einstein’s theory of relativity still applies.
The article is available to read here.
Frank Close is Professor of theoretical physics at Oxford and an Emeritus Fellow at Exeter College. He is the author of several books including Neutrino (OUP) and most recently The Infinity Puzzle: Quantum field theory and the hunt for an orderly universe (OUP).
