Più di 35 anni a caccia dei neutrini hanno permesso di svelare cosa succede nel cuore del Sole: si devono a Gallex e Borexino l’osservazione e la prova dei processi che alimentano la nostra stella (ANSA).
It’s thanks to Gallex and Borexino, solar neutrinos experiments operated at LNGS, that we know how to explain how our star functions.
The symposium, which will be held on Sept. 12, 2023 at Accademia dei Lincei in Rome, will present a retrospective of themes, results and implications of researches on Solar Neutrino at LNGS, featuring some of the most prominent scientists in the field.
Marcin Wojcik, Grzegorz Zuzel and Marcin Misiaszek received the Polish Minister of Education and Science Awards for Significant Achievements in Scientific Activity for their work on Borexino.

The American Physical Society has just announced Frank Calaprice as the recipient of the 2023 Hans A. Bethe prize : “For pioneering work on large-scale ultra-low-background detectors, specifically Borexino, measuring the complete spectroscopy of solar neutrinos, culminating in observation of
Latest Borexino CNO pre-print results(1) featured on Science News: “Neutrinos hint the sun has more carbon and nitrogen than previously thought Figuring out our star’s makeup is crucial for understanding the entire universe” By Ken Croswell JUNE 16, 2022 AT
Physicsworld magazine dedicated an article to our recently published papers about directional measurement of Sub-MeV solar neutrinos with Borexino: Until now, physicists measuring the properties of solar neutrinos have had to make a compromise – either measure the particles’ energy with

Thanks to its extraordinary radiopurity, Borexino observed the two main fusion reactions in stars and will soon weigh in on a controversy relating to the birth of the Sun that challenges the SSM (G.Bellini & A.Ianni on CERN Courier)
Borexino Collaboration General Meeting at LNGS, Dec 1st, 2021 – Special Open Session: experiment history and achievements (incl. video and slides of the talks).
End of Borexino DAQ occurred at 11:26 am of Oct. 7, 2021. Then detector decommissioning phase began. But we’re not done yet: stay tuned!
The 2021 Giuseppe and Vanna Cocconi Prize for an outstanding contribution to Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology is awarded to the Borexino collaboration for the groundbreaking observation of solar neutrinos from the pp chain and CNO cycle that provided unique and
BOREXINO, anno 2020: una scoperta rivoluzionaria per l’astrofisica (italian language)
Borexino experiment is listed in the 2020 Top Ten of Physics World. It was “chosen for observing neutrinos from the carbon–nitrogen–oxygen (CNO) cycle in the Sun”.
Detection of a 2nd Type of Nuclear Fusion Inside the Sun Recent Borexino results, pp and CNO cycles explained for general public in this nice video by Anton Petrov.
Borexino revealed for the first time the mechanisms powering the Sun and the other stars. In this article Prof. em. Gianpaolo Bellini describes the experiment and recollects its history and achievements (Il Nuovo Saggiatore Vol. 36, Anno 2020, No. 5-6, Pag. 82).
For most of their existence, stars are powered by fusion of hydrogen into helium via two processes that are well understood theoretically: the proton–proton chain, dominant in relatively small stars like our Sun, and the Carbon–Nitrogen–Oxygen cycle, which is prevalent in bigger, more massive stars. Borexino got the first experimental evidence of neutrinos emitted by the CNO cycle in the Sun core.
