Faster than light particles found, claim scientists

Particle physicists detect neutrinos travelling faster than light, a feat forbidden by Einstein's theory of special relativity http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/sep/22/faster-than-light-particles-neutrinos?newsfeed=true

Einstein Theory Of Relativity Canvas Print / Canvas Art by Michael Tompsett

Albert Einstein's equation for the General Theory of Relativity, on a red background. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.

Lorentz Transformation - describes how, according to the theory of special relativity, different measurements of space and time by two observers can be converted into the measurements observed in either frame of reference.

The quantum mechanical description of the world is incomplete as the Schrödinger equation is not Lorentz invariant and therefore fails to describe relativistic particles. Including special relativity into the frame of quantum mechanics leads to Dirac's equation which is Lorentz invariant but has yet another problem.
