2nd neutrino team refutes faster-than-light find

GENEVA (AP) ? European researchers say they have measured the speed of neutrinos and found the subatomic particles don’t travel faster than light.

The results refute another team’s measurements that astounded the science world last year by appearing to show neutrinos breaking the light speed barrier.

Nobel Prize winning physicist Carlo Rubbia says his team used a different experiment to trap neutrinos fired from the CERN laboratory in Switzerland to a detector hundreds of miles (kilometers) away in Italy.

Rubbia told The Associated Press on Friday that his team’s measurements indicate there was something “not quite right with the results” of the rival group.

CERN said last month at researchers found a flaw in the technical setup that may explain the earlier experiment’s figures.
