  • The Neutrino Huntersby Ray Jayawardhana

    Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 14.99

    Before the Higgs boson, there was a maddening search for another particle the ghostly neutrino. First detected in 1956, its fleeting appearances have teased answers to many mysteries: How did the Big Bang happen? Why is antimatter so rare? What might dark matter be made of? And could faster-than-light travel be possible, overturning Einstein?s theory... more...
