Summary

Wolfgang Pauli imagined the neutrino in 1936 in order to save the principle of energy conservation. An experiment confirmed its existence 20 years later. Since then, physicists keep on tracking down this particle with more and more sophisticated and expensive means. This film is an investigation which shows three different ways to catch neutrinos.
