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.
Neutrinos confirm rare solar fusion process (CERN Courier) Despite being our closest star, much remains to be learned about the exact nature of the Sun and how it produces its energy. Two different fusion processes are thought to be at
Detection of particles produced by the Sun’s core supports long-held theory about how our star is powered. By catching neutrinos emanating from the Sun’s core, physicists have filled in the last missing detail of how nuclear fusion powers the stars.
