Physicists have come up with a new model that they say solves five of the biggest unanswered questions in modern physics, explaining the weirdness of dark matter, neutrino oscillations, baryogenesis, cosmic inflation, and the strong CP problem all...

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the direct detection of the neutrino and to celebrate, Physics World caught up with Art McDonald – who shared the 2015 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on neutrinos. In this podcast, McDonald explains how his measurement of neutrino oscillation shattered the Standard Model of particle physics. He also looks ahead to the next generation of neutrino experiments and explains how they could solve some of the long-standing mysteries of physics.
