Submission + - The tunnel between CERN and Central Italy (

fph il quozientatore writes: The Italian ministry for university and research complimented the researchers for the recent (supposed) discovery of faster-than-light neutrinos. Her press release (Google machine translation) mentions that Italy funded the construction of a "tunnel between the CERN [in Geneva] and Gran Sasso [the labs in Central Italy]". Google maps reports the distance between the two labs as over 900km — but of course once the tunnel is open to traffic the trip will be much faster.
