Latest Neutrinos Stories
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.
When researchers at CERN observed what they believed to be sub-atomic particles moving faster than the speed of light, some believed that the discovery could challenge the very fundamental laws of the universe.
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.
Researchers at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) are reporting that they have discovered sub-atomic particles moving faster than the speed of light -- a finding which, if verified, could well turn the fundamental laws of the universe on their ear.
They were always mysterious.
A new Chinese experiment could help explain why matter predominates over antimatter in the universe.
An international research team led by Japan and that includes the University of Colorado Boulder may have taken a significant step in discovering why matter trumped antimatter at the time of Big Bang, helping to create virtually all of the galaxies and stars in the universe.
The results of a high-profile Fermilab physics experiment involving a University of Michigan professor appear to confirm strange 20-year-old findings that poke holes in the standard model, suggesting the existence of a new elementary particle: a fourth flavor of neutrino.
When researchers found an unusual linkage between solar flares and the inner life of radioactive elements on Earth, it touched off a scientific detective investigation that could end up protecting the lives of space-walking astronauts and maybe rewriting some of the assumptions of physics.
Neutrinos are likely half as massive as previous estimates suggested.
