  1. Cosmic sleuths on the case

    Posted Mar 25th 2012, 12:00am

    ... subtle changes in the behaviour of one of nature's most elusive particle: the neutrino. This information is a key that will help researchers unlock one of the universe's great mysteries: why the universe is dominated by matter rather than balanced equally with antimatter. Before you finish reading this sentence, hundreds of trillions of neutrinos produced in the centre ...

    ... in the frontiers of research and has Nobel Prize-winning potential, according to some commentators. Professor Wang Yifang, spokesman for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, told a press conference at the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing yesterday that they won a neck-and-neck race with France and South Korea to discover a new type of neutrino ...

    ... of Higgs will have an impact on is the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, which studies the properties of the 'oddball' in the standard model of particle physics. 'Many physicists, including myself, believe that the neutrino sector is a promising window to lead us to physics beyond the Standard Model,' he said. 'If the Higgs particle turns out to be rather ...

    ... working on an experiment that last September made news headlines. His team claimed to find that neutrinos may travel faster than light. The neutrinos were beamed under the Earth's crust from ... explained in a credible way their possible existence. The possibility that neutrinos can travel faster than light is not new. It was theoretically proposed in 1985 by Canadian physicist Dr Alan ...

    ... and tackle some of the most challenging scientific problems. Earlier this month, for example, the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment team, after years of hard work, shocked the international physics community by discovering the last and most elusive 'flavour' of neutrino. That was a triumph. But other discoveries by Chinese scientists haven't gone down so well. In one ...
