Speed of light slower than we thought? Probably not

Re: It Could Be True...

The paper seems to rely on the idea that it took the light from the explosion 3 hours to rise to the surface of the star - it kinda bounces around in the star until it can get a free ride in space to us, the neutrinos just head on out.

The neutrinos were only detected in one detector and so there is no evidence they came from said star.

Even if they did come from said star the accuracy we can give to how long after the detonation the light would be able to head on its way to us is pretty low - there's still a lot of star to get through and there's no practical evidence for what goes on in these things so we're still making guesses: If its a spinning star are we looking at it through the pole or the equator?
