But cosmic neutrinos-billions of which pass unnoticed through the Earth and indeed through the human body every day-are, by their very......

"The digital optical modules deployed last year have now functioned for one year without failures," says Halzen. "They perform like a Swiss watch. But the big story of this season is the performance of the drill."

After working out kinks......
