IceCube experiment measures Earth's ability to absorb neutrinos

For the first time, a science experiment has measured Earth's ability to absorb neutrinos - the smaller-than-an-atom particles that zoom throughout space and through us by the trillions every second at nearly the speed of light. The experiment was achieved with...

Study shows neutrinos can exhibit quantum superposition states

A team of MIT physicists analyzed the oscillations of neutrinos, the subatomic particles that weakly interact with matter and can pass through our bodies by the billions per second without any effect. The study showed the particles can be in a superposition state,...

High-energy cosmic neutrinos observed at the geographic South Pole

An team of international experts has announced a new observation of high-energy neutrino particles using an instrument funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The particles from beyond our galaxy have been detected at the geographic South Pole, using a massive

Researchers sent first 'wireless' message using neutrinos

A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light. The message was sent

Faster than light Neutrino particles report ‘debunked’ - They should have used the money to build a Free Energy Station

Reports of particles traveling faster than light may be due to be equipment error and not a breakthrough discovery, researchers said on Thursday, Feb. 23. A new round of tests expected to clarify the matter is set for May 2012.The OPERA experiment and

Laws of physics must be rewritten: Mysterious sun particles alter radioactive decay on Earth

The scientific process, as any experienced researcher can attest, provides a kind of road map through the forest of the natural world. By developing hypotheses and designing methods by which to test them, we use the scientific process to make the abstract world more
