Neutrino Experiment Repeated

Replication is key in scientific research, psychologists largely ignore this, but it seems that physicists do not:
The team which found that neutrinos may travel faster than light has carried out an improved version of their experiment - and confirmed the result.
This replication, of course, comes from the same lab. So it is possible that other labs with different equipment could not replicate it. Luckily two separate sites will attempt to replicate the results, alas it may be several months before we hear their results.
