Zipping by Photons
"Neutrinos, however, so rarely interact with any kind of matter that they zip right by the low-energy photons. And their electrically neutral nature
prevents magnetic fields from deflecting or accelerating them. So neutrinos can preserve their original energy content — critical to determining their
Of course, because they rarely interact with matter, neutrinos are very hard to spot. Compared with Gorham's project, the current crop of detectors
is relatively small — a few cubic kilometers or less — so they find far fewer particles. With an Antarctic-sized detector, Gorham and his team are
looking for bursts of radio energy that neutrino interactions give off as they smack into atoms deep in the ice."
No conspiracy here, just scientific research trying out a new idea.
Interesting stuff, really.
