Pint-Sized Science: When it comes to the neutrino, scientists must go big or go home

Interviewee: Lindley Winslow, Associate Professor of Physics, MIT
Interviewer: Melis Tekant, PhD student in Physics, MIT

To uncover the nature of the elusive building blocks of the universe, scientists must observe some of the rarest events. How does one accomplish this? With an international team of researchers, in a years long project, using a giant, underground, super-cooled crystal. Professor Lindley Winslow explains the science, the considerations that go into planning and carrying out such large scientific projects, and how she got interested in the field. She also talks about how she got the opportunity to act as a science advisor for the newest Ghostbusters movie!
