Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

Our body is pummeled by about 100 trillion neutrinos every second.


A neutrino is a subatomic particle just as tiny as an electron, but without any charge. Scientists know neutrinos have a tiny bit of mass, but they can't pin down exactly how little. The result is that neutrinos tend to give other matter the cold shoulder: They don't interact with their surroundings very often, which makes them difficult for scientists to spot.

Nevertheless, they're everywhere — your body is pummeled by about 100 trillion neutrinos every second. And scientists think the weird particles may hold the key to some of the biggest mysteries about the universe, including why matter won out over antimatter early after the Big Bang.
