    erm... i am a new member in this forum, so i am little unexperience.

    i would like to ask a question about the neutrino.
    When an atom is compressed, the electron move nearer to the nucleus, and neutrino, a type of particle will be released when the electron combine with the neutron.

    Scientist says that neutrino was like a ghost as it can past through the center of earth. They too says that they had caught some neutrino deep under the sea. What i was wondering is how it is 'caught' and how do they know that it is neutrino.

    i hope someone will help me to answer this question, thank you for helping.


    I am very crazy of science. I love science so much that i always study things further of the school syllabus. Hopefully i can learn more things through forums.

    Neutrino is "passport".

    2-happy-ville.

    Then we graduate to "why not b here".

    The neutrino (and other similar particles) can interact with matter, just very rarely. They do these experiments deep underground and such to shield all other particles that might contaminate the experiment.

    I was never shown anything that could possibly confirm such a particle.

    however neutrino is a kind of elementary particle which lack an electric charge. It was what i have learnt in the History Channel. The Super-Kamiokande detector had successfully detected the neutrino. The detector was designed to watch for supernova in the milky way galaxy. How did they do it. how does the detector function and how can they watch for supernova by detecting only the neutrino?

    I am from a time when there were only electrons flying around, only electron subatomic particles. Anything else was a structure, matter, objects.

    Now someone comes along and says that these particles that used to be electrons are neutrinos or something. It is almost like naming stars. You can call them what ever you like, but they have not changed.

    My bet is that they are measuring electrons. They had telescopes straight telescopes that can bring in clear pictures from other solar systems. I believe they are argon filled.

    In photography inside the camera, why don't they use the mirror to develop the film, and let you look right through the lens. Because a mirror substantially reduces the optical clarity and light available.

    Good enough to use as a view finder. But certainly not quality imagery.

    We can all get one of those and check it out. Ha-ha.

    By allowing poor science, America is breaking another Cardinal rule. Allowing known foreign pansies to set the course of science for America.

    When we know from the horrific fight England put up against science. That no other nation wishes real science in the hands of its people. Only American took that stand for earth. No other country not even Germany ever upheld the kind of determination for truth that Benjamin Franklin and George Washington did.
