It's not a trivia question. Physicists in the early 20th century knew that atoms contained component parts — electrons and a nucleus with protons and neutrons within. But nobody knew what the inside of an atom actually looked like. That's because no one could figure out how to smash one open to see ...
That's why physicists needed to go underground — nearly a mile (1.6 kilometers) below the Earth's surface — where a giant steel sphere encases a neutrino detector run by the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics' Gran Sasso National Laboratory.

GO INTO a trendy pub and the beer list will be accompanied by tasting notes as purple as in any upmarket wine bar. The “grassy aromas” and “citrus notes” come from the flowers of Humulus lupulus, or the hop plant. These vary in flavour from region to region and between different varieties of the plant.
