First neutrino oscillation results from T2K announced
The Lancaster T2K group announces the release of T2K's first neutrino oscillation results which were the focus of international press coverage on Wednesday 15th June.
These results give indications that neutrino oscillations encompass all three neutrino flavours, in which case they may have played a significant role in the preference for matter over anti-matter in the early universe without which our universe would not exist.

Professor Henning Schomerus is quoted in The Guardian (26 July) on writing a personal statement for admissions.
Many physics undergrad hopefuls mention a lot of the same books, or say they read the New Scientist, says Professor Henning Schomerus, physics admissions tutor at Lancaster University. "This wouldn't put me off, but I would probably more or less ignore it," he says. If you want to talk about a journal you read, pick out an article and discuss why it interests you.
Be specific. If The Big Bang Theory sparked your interest in physics, explain why. Schomerus, for instance, likes the episode where Sheldon takes a job as an unpaid waiter to try to discover how electrons move through graphene - it's an area he's done research in.
"Make the statement truly personal," he says.
