Ray Jayawardhana - Neutrino Hunters: The Thrilling Chase for a Ghostly Particle to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe

Monday, January 27, 2014 at 7:00 pm
With little mass and no electric charge, neutrinos are nearly as elusive as the Higgs boson, yet billions of these subatomic particles pass through the Earth constantly. First theorized by Pauli in 1934, neutrinos were finally observed in 1956. Jayawardhana, Toronto-based astrophysicist, writer, and commentator, recounts the scientific detective story behind neutrinos, believed to be a key to understanding dark matter, dark energy, antimatter, and the early universe.
