Episode 4: The Solar Neutrino Problem with Amy Pollien
Posted Dec 11, 2011 by bn
In episode 4 we try to explain the Solar Neutrino Problem to Artist Amy Pollien. Apparently, she spent most of her life secretly worrying that the sun was dying. Ben, Jocelyn and Dave set her straight: but doing so requires an explanation of solar anatomy, beta decay, cherenkov radiation, neutrino oscillation and fruit salad! Is the sun going out? The answer is SNO.
