NewsBulukumba – Modern physics has recognized the existence of neutrinos but physicists are unable to understand them.
Neutrinos traverse the universe and glide at the speed of light even through the human body.
It is one of the most elusive particles in the universe, second only to ultra-mysterious dark matter.

They are in large numbers and participate in the weak nuclear force and they are responsible for nuclear fusion and decay. So every time a nuke happens, a neutrino gets involved.
For example, the sun’s core is a giant nuclear fusion reaction, so naturally, it produces quite a number of neutrinos.
If you held up a thumbs up to the sun, about 60 billion neutrinos would pass through your thumbnail every second, according to previous research.

But neutrinos interact so rarely with matter that even though trillions upon trillions of them pass through your body every second, throughout your lifetime, the total number of neutrinos that will actually hit your body is about… one.
