A new plan would let people grow their own crickets, which they would then sell to be dried, ground up, and turned into protein-rich flour to enrich baked goods. That cookie you're eating may one day pack an extra cricket-fueled punch.
Among the unsolved mysteries confronting 21st century physics from gravitational waves to dark energy, neutrinos -the "ghosts of the cosmos"- are near the top of the list. These awesomely low-mass subatomic particles , less than a millionth of the mass of electrons, play a key role in weak interactions and come three flavors: electron, muon, and tau. Stars actively flood the universe with new neutrinos along with ancient particles created some two seconds after the Big Bang.
