Detecting solar neutrinos with the Borexino experiment

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Neutrinos are chargeless particles with about a mass about a millionth that of an electron that are created by the nuclear processes that occur in the Sun and other stars. These particles are often colorfully described as the ‘ghosts’ of the particle zoo because they interact so weakly with matter. A […]
