Neutrinos and Gravitation
Name: Jarbas F.
Light is affected by gravity, which makes it curves. Does the same
thing happen to neutrinos?
Although it has not been determined experimentally to my knowledge, neutrinos are
expected to have mass although only tiny fraction of that of an electron. If this is
to it will be affected by gravity, of course very weakly, because it would have a
small mass. If you would like to follow this up without the mathematical scaffolding
that would be daunting, I recommend the book "Supersymmetry: Unveiling the Ultimate
Laws of Nature" by Gordon Kane.
