Neutrinos have been snatching up Nobel prizes since the 80s, and they have been making appearances in our favorite Sci-Fi shows for just as long. But what ARE they? Nicknamed "ghost particles", neutrinos have *almost* no mass, no electric charge, and can travel through a light-year thick piece of lead with a 50/50 shot of making it out unscathed as a completely different particle. Let's call the Ghostbusters and crack this case wide open.
