In 1905 Albert Einstein told with is theory of special relativity, nothing travels fater than 186,282 miles (299,792 kilometers) per second. For many years this speed limit was a barrier but CERN lab near Geneva, Swisterland claims they have founded a subatomic particles travelling faster than the speed of light. These findings are critical as the modern physics is mainly build on Einstein's theories, so the scientists have been asked to re-confirm the result and also they invite other research institutes to carry on the research and help to evaluate the results.
If this claim is proven, there will be lot of new theories coming and the foundation of modern physics will be hardly questioned in future.
