I recently read in the local paper that a recent experiment has detected a neutrino rest mass & that this discovery may account for the missing mass regarding gravitational closure of the universe. I have not seen anything further on the subject. Can you tell me where I might get further info on the subject?

There are short articles in the February 7 issue of Science magazine and in the February 11 issue of Science News. The latter article says that their findings will be submitted to Physics Review Letters, and another experiment is planned for August.
