Neutrinos from the primary proton-proton fusion process in the Sun Nature 512, 383-386 (28 August 2014) [doi:10.1038/nature13702] It looks like our results on p-p neutrino measurement have attracted some general public interest. See below for a (likely incomplete) list of articles appeared
Our PeP paper (“First Evidence of pep Solar Neutrinos by Direct Detection in Borexino”) have been been highlighted with a Synopsis on the Physics website. Feb 07, 2012

May 16, 2007 01:25 CEST, first run with full detector started: we are taking data! CERN Courier : Borexino begins data taking at Gran Sasso
2007-05-15 – Inside view of the Borexino detector (camera #1). Borexino filling completed today @ 11:24:55 CEST, SSS full of scintillator!
2007-04-04 – Inside view of Borexino detector (camera #1). Water in SSS (on the bottom) being replaced by scintillator (on top). We’re almost done!On Apr 27, 2007 the filling of the Inner Vessel has been completed.
Inside view of the Borexino detector (camera #1). Water in the SSS (on the bottom) is being replaced by scintillator (on top). About 200t of scintillator in the SSS at this point. Borexino filling goes on…
Borexino “Water Tank” (outer shield) filling has begun.
PC delivery from Sarroch (Sardinia island, Italy) to LNGS has begun.
First batch of scintillator (~11,000 liters) in Borexino!
Another step completed. The Borexino Stainless Steel Sphere have been completely filled with ultra-pure water. Next steps: begin replacing water with buffer liquid and scintillator filling the Water Tank with ultra-pure water (shield)
First step toward the completion of the Borexino detector completed. The inner nylon vessels installation have been completed, and the vessels have been inflated (with ultra-pure, humidified nitrogen gas).
