"With X rays, which penetrate much more than ordinary light, you can see inside your hand. With neutrinos, which penetrate much more than X rays, you can look inside the Sun"
This is the story of Ray Davis who was the first man to look into the heart of a star. He did so by capturing neutrino, ghostly particles that are produced in the centre of the Sun and stream out across space. As you read this, billions of them are hurtling through your eyeballs at almost the speed of light, unseen.
The talk will introduce the people, show images left by neutrinos, and introduce a new science: neutrino astronomy.
