A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light.

Daya Bay Scientists Observe Previously Unseen Neutrino Transformation
2012-03-09 05:38:53

An international team of physicists collaborating on a neutrino experiment that began six years ago released their first results on Thursday, and they report that for the first time they have witnessed an elusive process in which one type of these subatomic particles transforms into another.

New research adds doubt that a prominent European astrophysics experiment may have found evidence of dark matter.

Fast Than The Speed Of Light? Not So Fast Scientists Say
2011-11-21 09:22:37

Italian scientists who had seemingly found further evidence that neutrino particles were in fact traveling faster than the speed of light have been dealt a major blow by another team that claims the evidence must be flawed.

New Tests Confirm Neutrinos Are Still Faster Than Light
2011-11-18 12:36:05

Scientists who believed to have found in September that certain neutrinos travel faster than light have ruled out a potential source of error in their measurements after completing a second round of tests.

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
