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)
Geoneutrinos and geoscience: an intriguing joint-venture
Geoneutrinos: production, propagation, and detection. Experimental and technological features of Borexino and KamLAND.
Science and Technology in very low energy neutrinos physics with Borexino
The study of very low energy neutrinos requires a suppression of the natural radioactivity. This is what Borexino succeeded to achieve.
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).
