Hunting for Neutrinos
Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Astrophysicist Ray Jayawardhana explains what neutrinos are and why scientists are looking for them. These incredibly small bits of matter may hold the secret to why antimatter is so rare, how mighty stars explode as supernovae, what the universe was like just seconds after the big bang, and even the inner workings of our own planet. In Neutrino Hunters, Jayawardhana tells a detective story with cosmic implications.
