Description
(2014 Publishers Weekly Top 10 Science Book of the Season) Trillions of neutrinos pass through our bodies every second, and these incredibly small bits of matter may hold the secret to why antimatter is so rare, how stars explode as supernovae, and what the universe was like just seconds after the Big Bang. In this book, Ray Jayawardhana delves into the shadowy world of neutrinos and recounts the colorful lives of some of the scientists who have sought them, including theorist Wolfgang Pauli; the troubled genius Ettore Majorana; the "architect of the nuclear age" Enrico Fermi; Cold War defector Bruno Pontecorvo; and the team of Marie and Pierre Curie. Jayawardhana also reveals why the next decade of neutrino hunting will redefine how we think about physics, cosmology, and our lives on Earth.
