In the 1930's scientists hypothesized the existence of 'neutrino' to explain the missing energy from nuclear decay. The neutrino had no electrical charge, and no mass, making it impossible to detect at that time.

There's an exciting new episode of NOVA this Tuesday: "NOVA accompanies scientists into the laboratory, revealing astonishing footage of bizarre experiments."

These experiments detect Neutrino, and take place at the South Pole using a 1 kilometer cube of ice!
