The Mysterious Neutrino
David Latimer, Ph.D., University of Puget Sound, Physics Department
Neutrinos are one of the fundamental matter particles in the universe, yet with such a tiny mass and no electric charge, they are very difficult to detect. At the August Tacoma Science Café, join the University of Puget Sound’s David Latimer, Ph.D., to explore what we know about this elusive particle, and how recent neutrino discoveries represent proof that our current understanding of particle physics is incomplete.
Tacoma Science Café is held on the second Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Tacoma Science Cafés take place at The Swiss Pub and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
