Recruiting team geoneutrino

Physicists and geologists are forming a new partnership to study particles from inside the planet. The Earth is like a hybrid car.  Deep under its surface, it has two major fuel tanks. One is powered by dissipating primordial energy left over from the planet’s formation. The other is powered by the heat that comes from radioactive decay.  We have only a shaky understanding of these heat sources, says William McDonough, a geologist at the University of Maryland.
