Antonio Ereditato resigns as OPERA spokeperson following the failure of the supeluminal neutrino affair. He will be part of history but through a harsh lesson we all learned. He remembers me another character of history of physics in a similar situation, Prosper-René Blondlot and N ray affair. So, science is a self-correcting process but some of the bad consequences could be easily avoided. It is indeed difficult in our epoch to hide information as we have a lot more media and channels where this can escape. But prudence is always the best choice. Waiting some other weeks before calling media would have saved Ereditato’s head.
