This past week, the entire world learned about the existence of neutrinos – that most elusive of subatomic particles. Did the CERN neutrinos travel to Italy at faster than light speeds? Only time and many months of analysis will tell. It’s a fascinating story, and many ResearchBloggers wrote their take on it. Here are some of my favourites.

One of the best explanations of the findings and the methods behind it that I’ve read is by Chad Orzel, who does his usual fine job in Q&A with his dog.

On Basic Space, Kelly Oakes gives a nice round-up of the neutrino news with a good set of links to further commentary.

For a more in-depth view, theoretical physicist Mario Frasca gives some perspectives from within the community, with pointers to other relevant recent literature on the Arxiv.

I hope neutrinos keep their spot in the limelight a bit longer, as it’s giving us some great food for thought about physics and the scientific method. Have a great physics-y week everyone! I’ll be back next Monday.

    Remarkably exciting point of view and also completely detailed. For that matter I doubt it can have been much better written than this in any way.

    I like their concept but I’m not a fan of their coffee product, Cook said. “I like my coffee to be robust…b-ut that acidic bitterness that is directly connected to their over-roast-ing of the beans in my opinion.”This describes it perfectly. Good coffee should be strong, but not acidic or bitter.cheap diablo 3 gold
