drawing of a neutrino's path away from an atom's nucleusMara Johnson-Groh won the institutional category in the 2022 NSWA Best of the Northwest Awards for her story on neutrinos in Symmetry Magazine. The judges wrote that her piece “did a great job of translating an incredibly tricky subject”: the second-most common particle in the universe, which baffles physicists with its shape-shifting, unpredictable behaviors in experiments. Johnson-Groh goes through the major hypotheses that could each explain some of the neutrinos’ anomalies, how physicists are setting out to test them, and what the answers mean might for the field.
