“Relativity without light”, the answer in the superluminal neutrinos;

leave a comment »

Suppose that the result of the OPERA experiment is right and neutrinos travelling faster than light….
This is the end of Einstein’s theory of special relativity and the Lorentz transformations?
Is it possible the special relativity without the second postulation;
The answer is yes.
Read for example:
Simple derivation of the special theory of relativity
without the speed of light axiom
” –
a very simple yet rigorous derivation of the invariance of the space-time interval (and hence the whole special relativity) just from the isotropy, homogeneity and a principle of relativity, without the need of the speed of light axiom.
