Before the Higgs boson there was a maddening search for another particle – the neutrino. First detected in 1956, it hinted at the answers to still more mysteries. Why is antimatter so rare? What might ‘dark matter’ be made of? Is faster than light travel possible? Renowned astrophysicist and award-winning science writer Dr Jayawardhana delivers a thrilling lecture on the hunt for the neutrino, from the dawn of the quantum age to today’s most inventive laboratories. This lecture is based on his new book, The Neutrino Hunters: The chase for the ghost particle and the secrets of the universe.
