I just finished reading the book Neutrino Hunters, by Ray Jayawardhana, the fourth popular science book of the author.

The neutrinos are electrically neutral, weakly interacting elementary subatomic particles with half-integer spin, as Wikipedia teaches us. Also, they are the last best hope of ambitious young physicists for a breakthrough, for an opening to some new physics, outside of the Standard model.

Ray Jay, who is a professor of astronomy at University of Toronto, wrote a popular physics book, nearly at the level of an introductory undergraduate physics class, but with a historic flavor. The story begins with present-day efforts of the scientists at the IceCube detector, located near the South Pole, to detect neutrinos, but it quickly jumps back in time to the beginning of the twentieth century to follow the pursuits of Einstein, Schroedinger, Heisemberg, Dirak and the likes, to revolutionize our understanding of the nature.
