Einstein's theory of special relativity says nothing can move faster than the speed of light, but early research suggests that some subatomic particles actually do. Now scientists are trying to confirm that, and one of the few places on Earth where they can conduct such research is in a high-energy physics lab half a mile underground in the Soudan mine up north.

U of M computer scientists find cell phone hackers can track your location
Your cellular network sends messages from their towers to your phone. Hackers - or law enforcement - can use those messages to keep track of where you are. The U of M researchers say they've let cell companies know and have suggested changes.
U of M researchers find flu vaccine less effective than thought
The researchers combed through 31 studies and concluded the flu vaccine is effective for 59 percent of healthy adults. They called that inadequate but still encouraged people to get the shots, saying it's the best protection available.
U of M prof played role in solving Higgs boson puzzle
Roger Rusack, a longtime University of Minnesota physics professor, has been a part of the search for the elusive Higgs boson particle for two decades. He helped design, develop and tweak a critical particle detector within the massive, 17-mile-long Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. His contribution, the electromagnetic calorimeter, measures the energies of photons.
'U' opens one-of-a-kind neutrino lab
