Quotes

...of a structure of the universe that we can't detect in any way," said Derrick Pitts, chief astronomer at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. "We're talking about what you might call substance, but it doesn't have any characteristics of substance that astronomers would typically identify matter to have."
...However, the neutrinos from this reaction in the Sun are especially elusive because of their low energy. "It's a measurement that we weren't really expected to do" says Andrea Pocar, a physicist at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst who is part of the Borexino experiment
"We might learn that a star's surface metallicity is altered if that star harbors planets" Haxton said
"With this measurement it will be possible to put better constraints on beyond-the-standard- model physics" says Renshaw
