Neutrino Hunters: Chasing a Ghostly Particle to Unlock Cosmic Secrets

Move over Higgs — it's neutrino time. The incredibly small bits of matter we call neutrinos may hold the secret to why antimatter is so rare, how mighty stars explode as supernovae, what the universe was like just seconds after the big bang, and even the inner workings of our own planet. Take a thrilling journey into the shadowy world of these elusive particles, as astronomer and author Ray Jayawardhana recounts a captivating detective story with a colorful cast of characters and awesome cosmic implications.

Ray Jayawardhana is the Dean of Science and a Professor of physics and astronomy at York University in Canada.
