Neutrinos Abound

On the Resonaances blog there is a nice post about cosmological bounds for neutrino masses. Apparently the data can set an upper bound

$\sum m_{\nu} < 0.68$eV

which fits with Carl Brannen’s prediction of the masses, as expected.

In other news, Valencia and colleagues may have found a new particle with mass 214.3 MeV, which they are calling the HyperCP particle. Unbelievably, there are already reports that it might be a Higgs. Cough.

    A Higgs at 210 MeV ? No wonder the upper limits have been shrinking as of late…

    Jokes aside, I need to read the paper… TOmorrow! I have been blogging since back home for four hours now, and feel pretty tired!

    hey did I tell you your word verification software is becoming rather aggressive ? Darn, I need a wild card!

    Hi Tommaso. Welcome home. Unfortunately, there isn’t much I can do about Blogger’s idiosyncratic word verification software.

    Huh… Ok. This time I got lucky, it just asks for “mpitc”. And it
    is quite readable too 🙂

    Cheers,
