Scientists at the world’s biggest physics lab said Friday they have ruled out one possible error that could have distorted startling measurements appearing to show particles traveling faster than light.

Many physicists reacted with skepticism in September when measurements by French and Italian researchers seemed to show subatomic neutrino particles breaking what Einstein considered the ultimate speed barrier.
