laughing stock

The story has been around everywhere since yesterday:

Neutrinos emanating from a particle accelerator at CERN, outside Geneva, had raced to an underground lab in Gran Sasso in Italy — a distance of 454 miles — about 60 nanoseconds faster than it would take a light beam.

As comment hit the media it is clear that skepticism is the main response to this new. The most surreal of the answers has been the one coming from Mariastella Gelmini, Italian Minister of Education. An official statement congratulates the authors of the discovery and proudly claim the italian government contribution of 45 millions euros for the construction of the tunnel that links Geneva to Gran Sasso.
