Neutrinos exceeding the speed of light & the search for the Higgs Boson……
I want them to solve the neutrino problem – been trying for years to ride as fast as the speed of light and a definitve answer would help me decide whether to carry on trying or give up and just eat more pies…….
But you do know, the faster you go, the greater your mass becomes?Posted 6 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Haven’t read up on this, but is c elastic, perhaps?
Read up on it, depends how you define elastic, it does change, the constant bit is everythign changeing to compensate for it.
eg car driving at 0.99c with its headlights on.
The driver still sees the light traveling at the speed of light, because altough its only going 0.01c faster than he is time has slowed down so much for him that the speed appears the same. So to him it takes a second for the light to reach a point in the distance, to a stationary outside observer it took 100seconds.Posted 6 years agoshedfullMember
…..all pretty simple stuff to sort out but with no practical application as far as I can see. What we really need is the greatest minds in science getting together to work out why an apparently straight stick, lying on flat ground, can leap up and massacre the rear mech of a bike. When they’ve sorted this out, they can go on to work out the gap between tyre and fork arch that won’t trap holly leaves so they go “zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz” against the knobs on the tyre.Posted 6 years agoglenhSubscriber
Maybe we can’t spot these Higgs Bosons because they’re made from neutrinos, and so whizz about so fast they can’t be seen. Seems a logical conclusion to me.
Except that it makes no sense. Neutrinos aren’t even bosons! 😉
Well, mesons are bosons made from fermions (quarks), but you can’t make a boson from leptons (which neutrinos are).Posted 6 years agoshedfullMember
Would’t it be great if you could order from Wiggle and it turned up the day before?
But if you forgot to order from Wiggle after the stuff had turned up, you would disrupt space time and the universe would implode. And then you’d have to ride at 88mph, go back to 1955 and put it right.Posted 6 years ago
