be to nothing, yet they permeate
the Universe, to an astonishing
degree being energetic particles.
Neutrinos are formed by cosmic rays
and nuclear reaction of the sun. There are muon
neutrinos; tao neutrinos have now been confirmed.
Neutrinos are force carriers
Neutrinos are energy lost during radioactive
decay. Neutrinos travel in straight lines.

would take a stack of lead hundreds of light years thick to stop one in

Scientists have been able to detect
them by using 100,000 gallon tanks containing perchloroethylene (dry cleaning
fluid), and by using tanks filled with 50,000 tons of purified water. Here,
when a neutrino bumps into a nucleus
of chlorine, the chlorine turns
into radioactive argon.

decay. Neutrinos were discovered. There existence was proved
at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, by Clyde Cowan and
Fred Reines in experiments detecting a chain of events involving subatomic
particles that could only be accounted for by the events.
Neutrinos, which are leptons,

Neutrinos respond exclusively to the
