Particles Moving Faster Than Light

This is an interesting blurb article about some findings out of CERN and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Apparently some of the measurements taken there show neutrinos moving 60 billionths of a second faster than the speed of light over a 730 km distance. While they are waiting for others to run tests to help confirm these results they have high confidence in what they are measuring. This prove interesting because if any particles are measured as moving faster than the speed of light part of Einstein’s theory of special relativity will be proven wrong.

My question is when can I expect my time traveling DeLorean from all of this?
