Did you know that "it is possible" doesn't mean the same thing as "you are able to do it" ?

You need salt caves and massive collector arrays. Best I can do is a shoebox and some tinfoil.

Because you the Sun's neutrinos can pass through anything.

I: May night find it be.  But You: the Sun's neutrinos can pass.

The "article" was really shy on how the rest of us can play along at home...  'cause like I can see neutrinos, man, it it'd be cool if I could like take a picture of them.... yea...

/looks like an 8-bit explosion on a 30 year old game system, just sayin'

Seriously? The article is four sentences long and you couldn't be bothered to proofread it?

Wouldn't it get photo bombed by a Chinaman?

ENHANCE!

Heh... sweet... but wouldn't that be a neutrinograph?

Toldya' the Coleco Adam was ahead of its time.

yeah, I had to try and explain that to a 8 yr old.
Best I could do was because of the camera, and it's through the earth.

According to this page it's actually a composite from 503 days of measurement, not a one-night observation. It's also from 2007.

Not the preferred nomenclature.

okay... (my 7 yr old just looked at me like I was plaid) but for your 8 yr old)
neutrino primer

AND
about this image
coles notes... you are not taking this picture at home.

And I took too long making a story... tiny fist at Ivo and all that

Billions of neutrinos pass through every centimeter of the Earth every second?  Sounds similar to the number of penises that pass through your mom's vagina.

Answering the question of how neutrinos that pass through everything were stopped by a camera. They weren't.

Well, a few were, and then the reactions were detected by the array.

But yeah, that... 'article' is terrible.

We don't call it photo bombing anymore?

and an Earth greater than 8000 miles in diameter, made of solid rock.

Not really, doesn't need to be stopped to be detected by the CMOS detector... Just had to pass through it. Light isn't really ever "stopped" even in a black hole...

This is why I stopped clicking Gismodo links
