Neutrino interactions with matter are extremely rare, so detecting a neutrino is very hard.
Neutrino detectors are typically large, underground tanks filled with a fluid that reacts to the passage of neutrinos. In neutrino detection, bigger is better! The bigger the tank (detector), the more neutrinos it will detect.

    1. I dunno if thats the one from Sudbury, but we have a massive neutrino observatory. Its stationed wayyyyy underground in one of our mines.

    2. I hope my job one day involves taking a boat out into an artificial lake of heavy water filled with photoreceptors.

    3. That’s one hell of a lot of work just to make a breakfast cereal.

    4. I bet these things are a scam of some sort. The “neutrinos” they detect are prolly just random malfunctions in the equipment or atomic decay or something similar. Good enough for a billion dollar grant though. Cuz spearmints in underground caves? Hell, that’s just GOT to be scientific.
