A good week for neutrinos: highest-power beam delivers oscillations, space delivers highest energy

The NOνA far detector, at Ash River Minnesota, measures neutrinos fired from Fermilab in Chicago – 800 km away. This week NOνA reported data showing that they change types during that journey; the beginning of what promises to be an … Continue reading
