Large Hadron collider notwithstanding, it's still an Einsteinian universe
Mac Nachlas' letter suggests that the results of a recent European experiment not only raises entirely new doubt about Albert Einstein's theories but also reveals a failure of the U.S. to keep up with other devolved countries in its investment in basic research ("Faster than light? Research will benefit America in ways we can't foresee," Sept. 27.) I think Mr. Nachlas may be jumping to conclusions in two different directions at once (a phenomenon which itself may bear investigation by those who monitor the laws of physics).
