This picture isn’t new, but it’s nonetheless, amazing. You’re looking at an image of the sun taken at night through 12,800km of Earth’s rocky matter. How is this wizardry possible? Because you the Sun’s neutrinos can pass through anything.

About 65 billion (6.5×1010) solar neutrinos per second pass through every square centimeter perpendicular to the direction of the Sun in the region of the Earth.

Pretty incredible.
