Description:

For more than eighty years, brilliant and eccentric scientists have been searching for incredibly small bits of matter called neutrinos. Trillions of these ghostly particles pass through our bodies every second of every day but, until recently, most people had never heard of them. Neutrinos do no harm and leave no trace, yet they hold the key to unlocking some of the biggest mysteries of the universe. Join renowned astrophysicist and award-winning author Ray Jayawardhana as he takes us on a thrilling journey into the shadowy world of neutrinos and the colorful lives of those who chase them revealing just how significant these fast-moving particles are to the world we live in and why the next decade of neutrino hunting will redefine how we think about physics, cosmology, and our lives on Earth.
