Neutrino oscillations


Congrats to the new Nobel prize winners in physics. I actually just mentioned neutrino oscillations the other day. The solar neutrino problem was a pretty big deal for awhile there. Some of my fellow grad students worked on SNO and we had a pretty neat live feed of SNO events (pictured above). I recall a controversy about whether to dump some salts into the thousands of gallons of heavy water borrowed from the Canadian government to deal with background noise.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
