Geoneutrino Girl

Hurrah for geoneutrinos! The Earth holds such unexpected wonders, like antimatter particles buried deep within the interior. What's even more amazing is the fact that we scruffy bipedal humans discovered their existence, for as Clara Moskowitz notes, "These particles are incredibly difficult to find, because they pass through almost everything without interacting in any way."

Doesn't Geoneutrino sound like a super heroine's alias? Geoneutrino Girl! Right . . . I think I'll let someone else write that story! But you can check out Clara's article below.
