Quantum Gravity and String Theory


Anomalous Gravitational Acceleration and the OPERA Neutrino Anomaly

Authors: David Brown

In September 2011, OPERA researchers observed muon neutrinos that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light, but in February 2012, re-analysis suggested that a loose fiber optic cable might have caused the problem. The explanation of the OPERA neutrino anomaly might have 3 alternatives: (1) There are one or more serious experimental errors. (2) Quantum field theory is slightly wrong. (3) General relativity theory is slightly wrong. Is alternative (3) known to be true? Overwhelming empirical evidence shows that Milgrom is the Kepler of modern cosmology. Combination of the ideas of Fernández-Rañada and Milgrom might explain the OPERA neutrino anomaly, because the GPS timing differs slightly from the predictions of general relativity theory.
