# Where to look for the next neutrino...

Hello,

My first post here, so please be gentle if I make mistakes of any kind...

Has anyone else noticed the relation between the mass under the standard model of the three known neutrinos?

When plotting the difference of mass between the "generations" on a (natural) logarithmic scale, they appear respectively at 4.5 and 6.7 (sorry if this might seem an unusual pattern, but funny things happen in nature - sometime)

Thanks

Since nobody has measured the neutrino masses, only their mass differences, your premise is incorrect.

So when they change "type" en-route, is it just spinning matter or what exactly?

That's a non-sequitur. You made the assumption that the masses were well-known. That assumption is incorrect.

well, I just hope that the mass of light will not surprise you :-)
