Neutrinos come in three flavors — electron, muon and tau — and have been known to change, or oscillate, between certain flavors. Now, for the first time, scientists can definitively say they've discovered muon neutrinos changing into electron neutrinos.

All I could think of was ice cream. Ice cream is a gift from God, right there with the oceans and doggies!

This was the solution to the solar neutrino problem.

I thought this was already know about 60 years ago. I’ll give it a full read and find out what’s new.

I hate pop science articles. They never explain the science behind the headline. Low information science sucks.

It gets easier if you can think - there is no particle. Like there is no spoon. (Red pill)

They are seeing a reaction unlike what their theories predicted. A statistical difference leading them to declare that they had discovered a change from one type of particle to another.
A more scientific person would suggest that the original theory was flawed, and they they had better come up with a new theory.

You too, eh? I’m a lay scientist, but consider myself up to par with the PhD folks as far as keeping abreast of current physics, etc.

Does this have something to do with testicles?

I understand.

When I looked for the author’s background I think I found here education listed as Psychology or a related field.

I have a business degree. But I have been a Ham Operator most of my life (& commercial radio license) and for most of the 14 years I lived in NM ran I with the techs and engineers from the labs.

I have also known a few “non-degreed” engineers who worked in the defence industry. Those “engineers” were head and shoulders above most of them. They started as tech’s and had a hands on background that the university only engineers did not. One of those techs worked for my father-in-law in the weapons industry. He was absolutely the brightest I ever met. He could smell the cause of problem by instinct. Amazing. His name was Dwyane Cauthorn, he went by DC (appropriate). He held several patents.

There was a time when many mechanical engineers had the grease under the fingernails experience before college. Many of those were tops too.

If my chocolate ice cream shifts to strawberry, I’m going to be an unhappy camper.

If the vanilla shifts to peanut butter chocolate crunch, then I’m good to go.

I’ve heard that first there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.

I think that's at the Neapolitan boundary

To be more precise, the first is at the Neapolitan boundary and the second effect is the Parfait cascade. you’re okay so long as you don’t split your infinities, that yields a caramel chirality.
