Miniscule MINOS

Catching The Particularly Slippery Particles - The Neutrinos!

MINOS - Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search,As you may well have noticed I like to mix languages from time to time. Just for fun. MINOS is far from miniscule or anything mini at all. The only really, really mini are of course the neutrinos. Those sly slipperly particles always getting a way with it. They just go straight through the whole planet. Doesn't cost them one tiny little bitty thing. And we want so bad to catch them we build all sorts of constructions in their honor. To no avail so far. :-)
