Summary

The first neutrinos have been spotted colliding with heavy water molecules in a giant tank at the bottom of an Ontario nickel mine. Announced last week, the events mark the inauguration of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, a new facility that physicists hope will finally solve the solar neutrino problem, which has been haunting the field for decades.
