Faster than light particles & extra dimensions…?

A potentially truly incredible discovery by scientists at CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, translated as… the European organisation for nuclear research).

Listen to this incredible interview with CERN’s Brian Cox who explains the situation far better than I can.

In a nutshell, this could be the first recorded evidence of a particle (in this case neutrinos, or anything for that matter) travelling faster than the speed of light. This could mean the existence of parallel dimensions which allow a different route for the particles to travel through, instead of using our own dimension, in effect more than the 3rd dimension and 4th dimension (time) which we already know about.
