THE NEUTRINO. MILLIONS OF TIMES SMALLER THAN OTHER SUBATOMIC PARTICLES?

The humble neutrino particle won its fourth Nobel Prize in physics this year (also in 2002, 1995 and 1988). Despite being millions of times smaller than other subatomic particles, it is of major importance in physics and could be the key to unravelling some of the universe's best-kept secrets. So where is neutrino research heading next and what could it discover?

Matter is made of fundamental particles. Most people will have heard of electrons, neutrons and protons and perhaps even quarks, which make up the latter two. But to me, the neutrino is the most amazing fundamental particle. They are everywhere. About 65 billion neutrinos, produced by nuclear fusion in the Sun, pass through every square centimetre of area on Earth, every second (you could try and calculate that yourself), without doing anything.
