Yes, I thought it was a good programme too…There is still a lot of work to be done on neutrino detectors. Neutrinos from the Sun were detected in the 1980’s i think, but these detectors are searching for cosmic neutrinos, which are a lot harder to differentiate. They are also trying to work out the direction they are coming from, to try and locate sources.I beleive they have detected neutrinos from supernova 1987A (the Rob McNaught one, in the LMC) – but no others (with any statistical significance).Callum
