Data Can Pass Through 240m Of Rock Using Neutrinos [Headlines]
By placing letters on a stream of neutrinos, physicists were able to send them through solid matter.
A team of physicists encoded a short string of letters on a beam of neutrinos at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., and sent the message to a detector more than a kilometer away. On the journey the neutrinos passed through 240 meters of solid rock, mostly shale. What was the word they transmitted in the preliminary demonstration? “Neutrino.” R.B. Trends
