OPERA collaboration shocked the world in September with the announcement that the ghostly subatomic particles called neutrinos had arrived at the Gran Sasso mine in Italy about 60 nanoseconds faster than light speed from the CERN particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, 730 kilometres away. Some theories posit that there are extra, hidden dimensions beyond the familiar four (three of space, one of time). They are beginning to understand that the speedy neutrinos tunnel through these extra dimensions, reducing the distance they have to travel to get to the target.
After two additional weeks of observation scientist are now confident that neutrinos can go faster than light. Einstein's theory of special relativity posits that nothing can travel faster than light, and many physicists believe the result could disappear in a puff of particles. So the theorists have been struggling to reconcile the September result with the laws of physics.

In 1932 Nikola Tesla wrote: I have harnessed the cosmic rays […] they are small particles, each carrying so small a charge that we are justified in calling them neutrons. They move with great velocity, exceeding that of light. (Source: http://www.nuenergy.org/nikola-tesla-radiant-energy-system/ )
