Questions:
  • Why study v & what is special about them?
    • To 'map' the sky / universe with methods other than visible light range.
    • Tiny mass, very rarely interact, travels through medium.
  • How & when did the concept of v come about?
  • What were the initial theories? Are they still valid?
  • Is there only 1 type of v?
    • Solar v, Atmospheric v, SN v
    • What are the similarities and/or differences between each type of v?
    • Do they travel at different velocities?
    • Do they have the same energies?
  • Were they all detected initially?
    • What equipment was used?
    • What detection medium used?
    • No.
    • Because they changed types, due to v oscillation.
    • Neutrino Oscillaion
  • Have all types of v been detected now? How?
  • Are all types of v detected together every time? Why not?
  • Why are we studying SN v?
    • Why SN1978A?
      • It was close enough to be observed
  • What is speical about SN v?
  • Are they the same as when they were just produced, inside the SN?
  • How do we detect SN v?
    • With the experiments, do we just detect SN v?
    • How do we distinguish which v are from what source?
  • What is special / different about each detection method?
  • Are there any differences in detection methods x years ago?
  • What are the results for the differnt methods?
  • Does the results correspond to theory / prediction?
  • Can we tell the direction of the SN v? If so, how?
  • Can we tell the origin (location) of the SN v? If so, how?
  • Can we tell the origin (time) of the SN v? If so, how?
  • Can we tell the original type of the SN v? If so, how?
  • ... (more questions) ...
  • What will future SN v detection lead to?
