I heard on the BBC the other day that a repeat experiment is planned,
firing neurinos from the US into Canada. The labs were not cited, but I
expect it would be Fermilab to Sudbury Ontario. If this is the case,
then there will still be the problem of not being able to run a parallel
fibre as the Sudbury detectors are also deep underground. This means
that the emitter->detector path length will still be a paper length, and
if there is a problem with the reference frame definition, or time
transfer methodology , then the results may also be subject to questions
raised in the case of OPERA. The distance between these labs and the
OPERA experiment are of the same order of magnitude so it will be
interesting to see what hatches.
