Event description

Before the Higgs boson there was a maddening search for another particle that holds the secrets of the universe – the neutrino. First detected in 1956, it teased the answers to still more mysteries. Renowned astrophysicist and award-winning science writer Ray Jayawardhana delivers a thrilling detective story of revolutionary science from the dawn of the quantum age to today’s most inventive labs.
