Strange Neutrinos from the Sun Detected for the First Time

An underground neutrino detector has found particles produced by the fusion of two protons in the sun’s core

Deep inside the sun pairs of protons fuse to form heavier atoms, releasing mysterious particles called neutrinos in the process. These reactions are thought to be the first step in the chain responsible for 99 percent of the energy the sun radiates, but scientists have never found proof until now. For the first time, physicists have captured the elusive neutrinos produced by the sun’s basic proton fusion reactions…

Four large murals painted by artist Tim Guider inside Long Bay prison, Sydney in the mid 1980’s. The murals took 2 years to complete and now have a Heritage Order protecting them.

They’re called Killing the Wall, Bi-centennial Apocalypse, Orphalese and
Rainforest - symbol of Paradise.
