Neutrinos FTW

Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald share the honor of 2015's Physic's Nobel Prize for their work regarding neutrinos "flipping". Neutrinos come in three forms - electron, muon, and tau - each of which is so tiny they literally pass through all matter without interacting with it. To put that into perspective, according to a high energy physicist at the DoE, if you had a *block of lead one light year in length*, it would only stop *half of the neutrinos* flying through it! Returning to the Nobel Prize, the physicists' work at the underground detector under Mount Kamioka and the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory revealed evidence the neutrinos were changing themselves between each of the three different neutrino types. This basically revealed why neutrinos were not behaving according to the calculations - they kept changing in energy and mass - and therefore quantum particle physics continues to defy the standard model.
