In his usual thorough, graceful, magisterial manner Isaac Asimov describes the discover of the Neutrino, a particle which, invented to make the bookkeeping come out, delightfully deigned to exist. The first half of this short book describes the nature of the scientific endeavor: careful observation, inference and generalization of principles, which guide further observation and theorizing/5.

Looking for Neutrinos, Nature’s Ghost Particles To study some of the most elusive particles, physicists have built detectors in abandoned mines, tunnels and Antarctic ice.

A neutrino is a subatomic particle that found its similarities with that of an electron. But unlike electron, it has no electrical charge and negligibly small mass, which can also be considered zero. It is one of the fundamental particles which make up the entire universe.

Neutrinos are the most abundant particles in the universe still they. The Neutrino: Ghost Particle of the Atom by Isaac Asimov and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This book could be considered dated, but I think the opposite is the case.

(The particle was later named the neutrino in by Enrico Fermi.) Further studies showed that the neutrino was also necessary to maintain the conservation laws of momentum and spin.

Neutrino oscillations may reveal the existence of a fourth, ‘sterile’ neutrino, interacting with matter so rarely it makes the other three flavours appear positively sociable. The total mass of all three (or more) types of neutrino has consequences for the Universe because neutrinos are the second most common subatomic particle, after photons.

The trail of a “ghost particle" detected at the South Pole pointed the way. Social Sharing High-energy neutrino travels 4 billion light-years, then trips Antarctic detector.

The story of the neutrino, a chargeless, massless particle, inconceivable smaller than the atom, that travels at the speed of light and can penetrate through endess thicknesses of matter without leaving a trace.

A neutrino (/ n uː ˈ t r iː n oʊ / or / nj uː ˈ t r iː n oʊ /) (denoted by the Greek letter ν) is a fermion (an elementary particle with spin of 1 / 2) that interacts only via the weak subatomic force and gravity.

The neutrino is so named because it is electrically neutral and because its rest mass is so small that it was long thought to be mass of the neutrino is much. The Ghost Particle homepage. Links.
