If neutrinos can travel faster than light, this contradicts one of the very foundations of physics as we know it. Therefore, we need to understand how:
- neutrinos can have this ability when no other matter in the universe does.
- the equations of electricity and magnetism can include this result.
- our understanding of Einstein's Relativity Theories ("Special" and "General") is affected, and neutrinos seem to be our way to do this.
