SMP 4/9/16 | Photographing the Ghostly Neutrino | Speaker: Joshua Spitz

Saturday, April 9, 2016
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Weiser Hall (formerly Dennison Building) on Central Campus

You can't see them but they're everywhere. About 65 billion just passed through your fingernail in the past second. Indeed, the neutrino is the most ghostly of our fundamental particles. We've known about the existence of neutrinos for over 80 years, and yet their mysterious nature continues to confound us. This talk will discuss the importance of the neutrino in particle physics and cosmology and present how one can actually photograph a neutrino. No Ouija board required.

All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from Weiser Hall (formerly the Dennison Building) in the U-M Church Street parking structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services. For more information regarding the Saturday Morning Physics series click here or call 734.764.4437.
