Why do we want to find neutrino?
This all might make you wonder: Why are scientists looking for neutrinos, anyway? In short, it’s because they hold clues about the events and processes that created them—events that researchers are slowly trying to piece together.
“Neutrinos tell us a tremendous amount about how the universe is created and held together. There’s no other way to answer a lot of the questions that we find ourselves having,” Nathaniel Bowden, a scientist at the DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, told NewsWise.
Experts have compared the search for these particles to the work of archaeologists to reconstruct prehistoric artifacts in order to understand what life was like then. Better understanding of neutrinos could unlock secrets about other elements of astronomy and physics, from dark matter to the expansion of the universe.
They sound very important.
