Neutrino Science: The Post Nuclear Age, Extra-terrestrial Contact and The Perfect Wave (Part 1)

You might not have have heard that physicists want $1 billion US for a project to detect neutrinos that includes building an underground tunnel, 800 miles long, between Chicago and South Dakota. The recently released Depart of Energy plan includes funding for the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) which includes an experiment to "send the world's highest-intensity neutrino beam 800 miles thr...
