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)
Doctoral (PhD), master’s and graduation thesis on Borexino
Why and how the Sun and the stars shine
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).
