← Faster-than-light neutrino experiment to be run again

The dutch physicist Ronald van Elburg has proposed that the sattelite which has been used for the gps location has a speed which affects, by the laws of special relativity, the time measurement of the OPERA experiment. His calculations exactly compensate for the observed difference between neutrino- and lightspeed. I think it looks promising (and ironic since the problem would be solved by special relativity which seemed under attack by the OPERA experiment).
