Trans-Japan Neutrino Experiment May Solve Matter-Antimatter Mystery {VIDEOS}

It’s called the T2K Experiment, which stands for Tokai to Kamioka, and involves shooting a beam of neutrinos (underground) from the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex, or J-PARC, on the country’s east coast to a “pure water” particle detector near Japan’s west coast. The total distance traveled by these mysterious quantum particles is about 185 miles (295 km). And so far, the data coming in from T2K reveals some pretty curious behavior on the part of the neutrinos: they change ‘flavor’…And, in so doing, they just might provide the key clue for solving what’s known as matter-antimatter asymmetry.
