Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I have always been very worried about the possible consequences of neutrino masses. I just came accros a paper which I thought I would share with you.

First, the reference :
Neutrino mass and mixing implied by underground deficit of low energy muon-neutrino events
John G. LEARNED, Sandip PAKVASA, and Thomas J. WEILER
Volume 207, number l, PHYSICS LETTERS B, 9 June 1988

You might not have access to this paper, so I will copy/past below the most interesting claim published in this respectable journal
(below page 3, from bottom of left column).
These mass values imply several interesting results :
(a) [...]
(b) [...]
(c) [...]
(d) Relic tau neutrinos have sufficient energy density to close the university
I hope you will still be able to sleep tonight.

Relic tau neutrinos have sufficient energy density to close the university.
The time to start worrying is when it closes the bars. Then where would the students go?

If that isn't a typo meaning universe for university, I think I'll sleep all right.
