Scientists: Particles Appear to Travel Faster Than Light

Subatomic particles sent between two labs (over 450 miles apart) traveling faster than the speed of light? I think I'm going to need some independent, third-party verification before I start questioning Einstein theory.

Scientists in Switzerland say an experiment appears to show that tiny particles traveled faster than the speed of light -- a result that would seem to defy the laws of nature. The physicists say that neutrinos sent 730 kilometers (453.6 miles) underground between laboratories in Switzerland and Italy arrived a fraction of a second sooner than they should have, according to the speed of light.
