Thanks to one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on Earth, physicists have for the first time confirmed the existence of low-energy neutrinos created by the “keystone” proton-proton fusion process taking place in the core of the sun.
Physicists on Friday concluded once and for all that neutrinos are definitely not faster than the speed of light, preserving Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity that was challenged by earlier experiments.
Using one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on the planet, an international team including physicists Laura Cadonati and Andrea Pocar at the University of Massachusetts Amherst are now measuring the flow of solar neutrinos reaching earth more precisely than ever before.
The existence of Dark Matter particles in the Sun's interior seems inevitable, despite dark matter never having been observed (there or elsewhere), despite intensive ongoing searches.
An international team including scientists from Princeton University has detected subatomic particles deep within the Earth's interior.
