There are three types, or "flavors", of neutrinos:

    "Electron neutrinos, muon neutrinos and tau neutrinos. Each type is associated with an antiparticle, called an "antineutrino", which also has neutral electric charge and half-integer spin. Whether or not the neutrino and its corresponding antineutrino are identical particles has not yet been resolved, even though the antineutrino has an opposite chirality to the neutrino.


    Most neutrinos passing through the Earth emanate from the Sun. About 6.5×1010 solar neutrinos per second pass through every square centimeter perpendicular to the direction of the Sun in the region of the Earth."

    I consider myself pro-neutrino.

    I'm pretty ambivalent about Neutrinos.

    Be glad they have no charge and pass harmlessly through you.

    BBC Horizon Project Poltergeist (Missing Neutrinos) - Full Documentary



    "This is the story of two genuine scientific heroes. For forty years, John Bahcall and Ray Davis were engaged in a single extraordinary experiment - to find out why the Sun shines. In the end they would triumph. Davis would win the Nobel Prize and, thanks to their work, a whole new theory about how the universe is put together may have to be created.

    At the heart of this story is a tiny, utterly mysterious thing called a neutrino. Trillions of them pass through your body every second, touching nothing, leaving no trace. Yet neutrinos are one of a handful of fundamental particles in the universe, essential to every atom in existence and clues to what makes the Sun work. But their ghost-like quality made trapping and understanding them immensely difficult.


    What then followed was a bizarre series of experiments. They led from a vat containing 600 tons of cleaning fluid, to a vast cavern in a Japanese mountain, to a hole in the ground in Canada two kilometres deep.


    What they would reveal would stun the world of science. It seems that neutrinos may be our parents. They may be the reason why everything, including us, exists."

    Neutrinos are long-legged Mack Daddys.

    "Faster-than-light neutrinos mean Einstein is wrong! At least, that’s what some popular press articles have suggested since researchers with the OPERA experiment in Italy presented evidence of neutrinos arriving 60 nanoseconds earlier than thought possible."
