About the General Meeting Presentation

DrLisaWhitehead.JPGNovember 4, 2016 is the Annual Membership meeting where we elect the incoming leadership team. You also won’t want to miss our annual meeting speaker. This year is Dr. Lisa Whitehead. Says Professor Whitehead

The neutrino is one of the elementary particles which make up the universe. Neutrinos are produced in the fusion reactions inside the sun and other stars, by natural radiation inside the earth, by supernovae, and by charged particles bombarding Earth’s atmosphere.  Despite their abundance, they are difficult to study because they interact very rarely.  I will give an overview of the history of neutrino physics, from the postulation of their existence to last year's Nobel Prize for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, and describe what we hope to learn in the future.
