Faster than light?

http://news.yahoo.com/roll-over-einstein-law-physics-challenged-215819033.html

Exciting times in physics! A few days ago I noted that the search for the Higgs boson may be showing it doesn’t exist, at least not where they thought it was.

Now the news that Italian scientists may have found neutrinos that travel faster than light, something thought impossible if relativity theory holds.  

If both these results are true, we are in for some exciting times as the current model starts to show cracks – as the Newtonian model showed cracks prior to Einstein’s work.
