Neutrinos are unique among fundamental particles because they change flavors as they travel. This is one of the reasons they are so exciting to ... .

neutrinos are not at all safe

neutrinos are incredibly safe

neutrinos are really dangerous

neutrinos are incredibly harmful

Most neutrinos pass through matter without ever interacting. They are very small and neutral. They don’t often come into contact with other particles. They don’t emit radiation or harm the materials they travel through. So,

neutrinos travel faster than light

neutrinos don't exist

neutrinos travel very close to the speed of light, but they don't surpass it.

The OPERA experiment showed neutrinos arriving at the detector surprisingly quickly, supposedly traveling faster than the speed of light. The OPERA team later discovered a faulty piece of equipment was responsible for the timing mismatch. Now, we know that

Scientists can use many different kinds of materials to detect neutrinos, from mineral oil and dry cleaning fluid to Antarctic ice and water. Because neutrinos are neutral and so small, it is ... to detect them directly.

Someone is there!

“Oscillations” refer to the way neutrinos change flavor as they travel. A neutrino born as one flavor (...) will eventually morph into the other varieties—and the probability of appearing as a different flavor depends on how far it has gone.

Discovering neutrino oscillations was particularly exciting because it revealed to scientists that neutrinos have mass, something the current model couldn’t explain. It’s the first and only evidence that the current model of particle physics may not be complete. That means more 1....physics ahead to explain this massive 2.....

congratulations

You've recovered all the ghost's memories! Now he can finally rest and you can escape from the house!
