Just what will they really be looking for?

What, do they get better vision due to a lack of ozone down there or is it secrecy?

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 source.

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.


Peace,
