Gedanken aus dem Leben, für das Leben

Life in Physics

Life in Physics

Their traces are in our tongues.
Look for them not only in fog chambers.
In the dark catacombs we
Tried to catch neutrinos
But in Baikal we found life

They’re so small
Why do you have to break them?
Now we know how powerful they are.
And we don’t learn anything important anymore ….

Neutrinos can be detected by the radiation they cause. When done in Baikal water, you can get false signals because of bioluminescence. Deep drilling is currently being used in Antarctic ice.

In particle accelerators, microparticles are split into constituent mortal parts. If they were alive, it would be a fatal act.
