Neutrino Traveling Faster than Light and Einstein's View of Relativity

    CERN researchers have observed that neutrinos can travel faster than light. Their finding agrees with our prediction (quoted below), which appeared in the daily newspaper "The Observer" on 5 June 2001. The statement was made on 4 June 2001 on the occasion of the inauguration of the book "An Alternative Approach to the Relativity" published by Grontho Procation, Rajshahi, Bangladesh.

    However, recently, we have found that Einstein's theory of special relativity is incomplete. It needs three more equations to make it complete. We have found those missing equations. Some of our findings have already been published in scientific journals and some others are in the process of publication. We hope to disclose all our results (published and unpublished) in a forth coming international conference to be organized by Rajshahi University. With the help of the completed form of the concept of relativity and the introduction of the concept of Reciprocal Symmetry, we have seen that there is no restriction on any particle's speed being equal to or greater than that of light. Therefore, we would like to convey our heartiest congratulations to the researchers of CERN lab. Their recent finding will, we hope, help achieve completeness and perfection of the development of relativity; just as Michelson-Morley's result of 1887 launched it.

    Quotation from "The Observer" of 5 June 2001, Dhaka: "According to Einstein's Relativity Theory, no particle can achieve the speed of light. This is a consequence of Einstein's Relativity Theory that when the speed of a particle approaches that of light, its mass becomes infinite which is absurd. It should be pointed here that it was experimentally found that a neutrino has a finite mass but it moves at the speed of light in contradiction with Einstein's Theory. On the contrary, according to the alternative approach, there is no such restriction on any particle's speed being equal to or greater than that of light. When the speed of a particle approaches that of light its mass becomes half which is reasonable and consistent with the experimental evidence".

    PLEASE NOTE: For your kind information, the proceedings of the seminar will be published in a special issue of the journal of Rajshahi University
