    We're talking about the nature of reality not what happens in it. But I see your point...

    If it brings forward fusion reactors by a few years we should be able to do something about that

    Nah, time-travelling particles are within the remit of SR. FTL however are not.

    Yes. Totally.

    Must be fucking cool to be at CERN at the mo. Some seriously hard-core geeky arguments going down. A physicist's equivalent of being told that Santa doesn't exist :D

    I don't think you get into science for the money :D

    I love how absent-minded about anything sartorial, visual etc most scientists i've met are. their brains are just floatin on a different wavelength to mine. i used to drink in the imperial college bar (£1 a pint).. met some proper lovely weirdos in there. ask them to explain this particle the LHC is searching for, fine - ask them what their favourite band is.. silence

    And pure research has never led to all kinda of practical usage in the past...

    So does this officially mean that time travel is actually possible?
