Listen: Unlocking the Universe's Mysteries with Neutrinos

India is poised to help physicists achieve a clearer understanding of our universe. But first, science needs to overcome politics.

In this episode of The Intersection, Padmaparna and Samanth trace back to an Indian experiment conducted in a goldmine in Karnataka in the 1950s. Work carried out three kilometres underground in search of the elusive neutrino particle that could help uncover great mysteries of the universe including the Big Bang. Find out what happens when science meets politics and how this quagmire is frustrating the Indian scientific community.
