A 2011 article from the Telegraph is going viral online, saying that scientists at CERN managed to measure particles traveling faster than the speed of light. If true, this would have major impications for the world of physics (and prove Einstein wrong in the bargain).
In fact, scientists proved no such thing: in 2012 the Telegraph published a retraction, explaining the results were due to a technical malfunction with a faulty wire in the equipment. Yes, even a machine as big as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) can malfunction if a tiny wire is not connected properly.
What this experiment does prove: old news can sometimes travel faster than the speed of retraction, as proven by this scientific graph from our Large Trend Olizer (Trendolizer):
