    The recent report of detection of the neutrino in its natural state appears to open a new chapter in man's studies of this most impalpable of all subatomic particles.   The discovery of the elusive neutrino's source is even bigger than it seems. M. Weiss/CfA Claudio Kopper didn’t think there was anything to see in that part of the sky, but he was : Peter Hess.

    The disappearance of neutrinos seems to be tied to a rather mind-boggling behavior of these elusive particles: neutrino oscillations. As neutrinos travel through matter and space, they transform from one type into another, either appearing as electron neutrinos, muon neutrinos, or tau neutrinos. The elusive neutrino was not detected until The reason it was so hard to find is that neutrinos interact very weakly with other matter and therefore are very difficult to detect. Earth is more transparent to a neutrino than the thinnest and cleanest pane of glass is to a photon of light.

    Yes, but what are neutrinos for? Seven schemes for putting an elusive particle to use By Ray Jayawardhana Globe Correspondent, December 1, , : Ray Jayawardhana. Book Description. This intriguing and accessible book examines the experiments on neutrino oscillations. It argues that this history gives us good reason to believe in the existence of neutrinos, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its interaction length is measured in light years of lead.
