The Many Uses Of Electron Antineutrinos

This is a terrific Physics Today article on the applications of electron antineutrinos.

As is the case in many other examples, we should NOT lose sight of the fact that something that first appeared to be esoteric out of high energy/elementary particle physics has now become something that has important uses. Think about this next time you hear someone asks for justification in funding for these high-energy physics experiments.
