An anonymous reader writes: A group of scientists has for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light. The message was sent through 240 meters of stone and said simply, "Neutrino." "Using neutrinos, it would be possible to communicate between any two points on Earth without using satellites or cables," said lead researcher Dan Stancil. "Neutrino communication systems would be much more complicated than today's systems, but may have important strategic uses."
