Measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA detector in the CNGS beam
(Submitted on 22 Sep 2011)
The OPERA neutrino experiment at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory has measured the velocity of neutrinos from the CERN CNGS beam over a baseline of about 730 km with much higher accuracy than previous studies conducted with accelerator neutrinos. The measurement is based on high-statistics data taken by OPERA in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011. Dedicated upgrades of the CNGS timing system and of the OPERA detector, as well as a high precision geodesy campaign for the measurement of the neutrino baseline, allowed reaching comparable systematic and statistical accuracies. An early arrival time of CNGSmuon neutrinos with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of light in vacuum of (60.7 \pm 6.9 (stat.) \pm 7.4 (sys.)) ns was measured. This anomaly corresponds to a relative difference of the muon neutrino velocity with respect to the speed of light (v-c)/c = (2.48 \pm 0.28 (stat.) \pm 0.30 (sys.)) \times 10-5.
No. This is a very complicated experimental paper. I can't judge it. It need a team of specialists in the field to go over it carefully like the FAA analysing a plane crash.
Carlos Castro has a theory.

Dear Colleagues :
We explore the many novel physical consequences of Born’s reciprocal Relativity
theory in flat phase-space and to generalize the theory to the curved phase-space
scenario. We provide with six specific novel physical results resulting from
Born’s reciprocal Relativity and which are not present in Special Relativity.
These are : momentum-dependent time delay in the emission and detection of
photons; energy-dependent notion of locality; superluminal behavior; relative
rotation of photon trajectories due to the aberration of light; invariance of
areas-cells in phase-space and modified dispersion relations. We finalize by
constructing a Born reciprocal general relativity theory in curved phase-spaces
which requires the introduction of a complex Hermitian metric, torsion and nonmetricity.
Superluminal behavior was one of the consequences found in the article
"The Many Novel Physical Consequences of Born's Reciprocal Relativity in Phase-Spaces" Int. J. Mod. Phys. A vol. 26, no. 21 (2011) 3653-3678;
Also in the article with MatejPavsic

Carlos needs to try to calculate the numbers in his theory that would describe the actual data. That would test his theory. This is not an easy task.
