First Evidence of Neutrinos --The 'Ghostly' Building Block of the Universe

Major international collaboration has seen its first neutrinos – so-called ‘ghost particles,' subatomic, almost weightless particles that only interact via gravity or nuclear decay. Because they don’t interact with light, they can’t be seen. Neutrinos carry no electric charge and...
