Scientists know relatively little about neutrinos, the most abundant matter particle in the universe. But Fermilab’s MINOS and NOvA experiments have made incredible strides in understanding how and why the fickle particles change their fundamental properties as they travel. MINOS began recording data about the oscillation phenomenon in 2005, and the longer-distance NOvA experiment began in 2015.
