I think the bigger deal was particles going faster than the speed of light. Neutrons/Neutrinos is just a coincidence. In fact Im pretty sure the whole thing is a coincidence, it just happens to be an amusing one.
Faster than the speed of light - relative to an observer's framework, you mean. Otherwise, time and space measurements don't apply to quantum particles.

Nice job - dropping the context of my question. The Tesla quote mentioned neutrons instead of neutrinos.
I'm really more interested in the philosophy of QM, what kind of philosophy can be derived from QM, and how its findings may alter our notions of time and space.
LOL, Relax your sphincter a little bit huh?
I was answering your rhetorical snark so that the less scientifically-minded would 'get-it': Tesla is no latter-day prophet.
If true, How will this impact our understanding of Space/Time?
The same way it will impact our understanding of Mass/Energy.
...and by this I mean a foundational paradigm shift no less shattering than Einstein's destruction of Newtonian Physics.
Thus, most have had a knee jerk reaction that it must be in error somehow.
But the thing is, those guys at CERN are top-shelf and know their rep is on the line with this announcement. They have spent months re-dotting the Is and re-crossing the Ts before announcing.
The Jury is gonna be out until the Americans and Japanese confirm/dispute the findings, but if I were a theoretical physicist I'd be welded to the chalk-board right now.
