In essence, the book proposes a unified nuclear particle theory that combines all fundamental forces of nature, including gravity, which heretofore has been elusive. Bringing historical events into the fold, the book entertains while providing insight into the mysterious neutrino and why it should be at the forefront of theoretical physics/5(4).   The book elucidates incredible perseverance and belief of key individuals who played role in the discovery of a neutrino (the subatomic particle). You are taken on an exciting journey that begins with Wolfgang Pauli proposing neutrinos and, reflecting onto how elusive they are, offering a case of champagne to anyone who finds them/5. “Neutrino Hunters is a riveting mix of science and biography, providing both entertainment and painlessly assimilated information. Jayawardhana makes clear that the story is just beginning, as neutrino astronomy is starting to provide new insights into the nature of the universe/5(39). Neutrino Hunters: The Thrilling Chase for a Ghostly Particle to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe. By Ray Jayawardhana. Farrar, Straus and Giroux; pages; $

The Neutrino Hunters: The Chase for the Ghost Particle and the Secrets of the Universe5/5(5). The Neutrino In this book, Marcello Veneziano presents many separate piece of evidence concerning a nuclear particle, the neutrino, behaving as a black hole and . This is a non-mathematical book written for the general population. It is concerned with the development of our understanding of the neutrino, from its proposition in the 's up to modern experiments (as of ). The author is an active physics researcher, but his writing style is easy to read/5. Cross search NU. It is possible to perform a cross search between the various pages of Neutrino Unbound. This is useful if you want to show the common elements that appear in the listings of two (or more) different topics or experiments. Go to the search form.

Close writes well and clearly and makes complex ideas understandable for non-physicists. The history of the neutrino is absolutely fascinating. Ironically, while I was in the middle of this book, CERN announced that it thinks it's determined that neutrinos move faster than the speed of light/5(67).   The Book Before the Higgs boson, there was a maddening search for another particle - the ghostly neutrino. First detected in , its fleeting appearances have teased answers to many mysteries: How did the Big Bang happen? Why is antimatter so rare? In Neutrino Hunters, the renowned astrophysicist and award-winning writer Ray Jayawardhana takes us on a thrilling journey into the shadowy world of neutrinos and the colorful lives of those who seek them. Demystifying particle science along the way, Jayawardhana tells a detective story with cosmic implications—interweaving tales of the sharp-witted theorist Wolfgang Pauli; the troubled genius . B.
