Caption: Electronic display of an event in which a neutrino has entered the IMB proton decay detector after passing right through the Earth. Neutrinos are "ghostly", electrically neutral particles with little or no mass. They can travel right through the Earth without interacting with matter at all. In this case, the cosmic neutrino has collided with a proton in the detector & produced a muon which shows up as a ring of light on the sides of the detector. The detector is seen in a perspect- ive representation looking along the track of the entering neutrino. The IMB detector is a giant tank of ultrapure water located 600 metres underground in a salt mine in Ohio, USA. (Event 155) (25.8.82)
