Anomalous Gravitational Acceleration and the OPERA Neutrino Anomaly (Updated)

Authors: David Brown

In September 2011, OPERA researchers observed muon neutrinos that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light, but in February 2012, re-analysis suggested that a loose fiber optic cable might have caused the problem. The explanation of the OPERA neutrino anomaly might have 3 alternatives: (1) There are one or more serious experimental errors. (2) Quantum field theory is slightly wrong. (3) General relativity theory is slightly wrong. Is alternative (3) known to be true? Overwhelming empirical evidence shows that Milgrom is the Kepler of modern cosmology. Combination of the ideas of Fernández-Rañada and Milgrom might explain the OPERA neutrino anomaly, because the GPS timing differs slightly from the predictions of general relativity theory. Professor Antonio Fernández-Rañada and I have exchanged e-mails on the Rañada-Milgrom effect and he wants to be more thorough before going into print. He and I might, or might not, be regarded as implicit collaborators. His ideas seem to indicate that the Rañada-Milgrom effect is approximately correct, but my ideas favor the effect as a precise indication of the existence of alternate universes.
