Elusive neutrino candidates detected in breakthrough physics experiment

For the first time ever, researchers have detected neutrino candidates produced by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN facility near Geneva, Switzerland.

In a major milestone in particle physics, researchers in a new study report observing six neutrino interactions during an experiment at the LHC. Neutrinos are subatomic particles that have a very small mass like an electron but have no electrical charge — a characteristic that has made them extremely challenging to detect.
