Presentation on Neutrinos

The Sun produces a lot of neutrinos. It travel extremely fast. Almost at the speed of light if small mass. Neutrinos pass from the core of the Sun to the surface in only two seconds. They take less than 8.5 minutes to travel the distance from the Sun to the Earth. Neutrino detectors use hundreds of thousands of liters of these materials in a container buried under many tens of meters of rock to shield the detectors from other energetic particles from space called cosmic rays.
