Lethal Neutrinos

Q. How close would you have to be to a supernova to get a lethal dose of neutrino radiation?

  • Neutrinos are ghostly particles that barely interact with the world at all. Look at your hand—there are about a trillion neutrinos from the Sun passing through it every second.
  • If you observed a supernova from 1 AU away—and you somehow avoided being incinerated, vaporized—even the flood of ghostly neutrinos would be dense enough to kill you.
