mass of neutrinos

New research may help scientists accurately measure the mass of neutrinos for the first time.
Neutrinos are the smallest known subatomic particles in the universe, and they're passing through the Earth (and your body) constantly.
This computer simulation shows a neutrino being detected at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory in Canada, where researchers are trying to find out more about the tiny, mysterious particles. But the latest researchsuggests it may be better to measure the mass of neutrinos in space than the laboratory.
