Physicists must get used to the limelight
A month after revealing errors in their high-profile claim that subatomic neutrinos had been clocked traveling faster than the speed of light, two leaders of the Italian OPERA collaboration have resigned. Both spokesman Antonio Ereditato of the University of Bern in Switzerland and physics coordinator Dario Autiero of Lyon's Institute of Nuclear Physics in France, who presented the stunning result to a packed auditorium at CERN (pictured) in September 2011, sent out resignations today.
