    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

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