Faster Than Light Neutrinos – No

There have been a lot of publicity and discussions about the faster than light neutrinos. The latest “Faster-than-light neutrino result queried” is from BBC. To quote the article:

Prof Glashow and his co-author Andrew Cohen argued that particles moving faster than light should emit further particles as they travel – in the process losing energy until they slow down to light-speed.

There is a simpler reason why these neutrinos cannot be travelling faster than light – Lorentz-Fitzgerald transformation. That anything traveling faster than light must convert into exotic matter. The squareroot of [1-(v^2/c^2)] when v > c become squareroot of -1, or mass becomes exotic.

If that happens than one would not recognize the collisions as mass-based neutrino collosions, these collisions would be unrecognizable, probably claimed as a new particle.

Therefore, in I my opinion, these neutrinos did not travel faster than light, but I cannot comment why the 60 nanosecond early timing. One of the physicist I spoke with had suggested that these experiments are so sophisticated that it is difficult to infer what happened without access to the original experimental data, by someone thoroughly familiar with the experimental method used.
