so if im reading that right he was off by 60 nanoseconds.

tough crowd.

I want a Neutrino cannon, you are death before you see me shoot !!
Faster then light, so after we get a optic computer, we need to update it with a neutrino one, LOL

The expected time is around 2464 nanoseconds, so 60 nanoseconds is fairly significant. At least when you're expected upper bound is literally written in stone.

So when do I get to warp faster then light in my own Enterprise?

you'll need to find a steep slope first with plenty of runway.

60 nanoseconds quicker than light over a 730km distance? I'm not going to crunch all the numbers out but that's insignificant.

If you were riding on the neutrino you got there 60 billionths of a second faster than if you were riding on a light beam. The time difference is imperceptible.

I suppose if you scaled that up to billion and trillion km distances, as we find in space, it might become significant at some point... but you'd have to be traveling to the other side of the galaxy for it to matter.

The only cannon that does Zero damage to it's target? lol
