This Why Files article investigates the neutrino particle, and why scientists are interested in finding them. The neutrino was 'invented' by a physicist to balance out an equation in the 1950's, and ever since, astronomers and physicists have been looking for these particles as traces to the early universe. The article looks at how neutrinos can be detected in Antarctica, and the universal clues they ... Full description.
