Back to Solar Neutrinos, The First
Thirty Years (2002 edition)
VI. Transition from problem to opportunity.
Bahcall, Davis, Parker, Smirnov, Ulrich
The three papers included in this section have been described in
the Preface to the paperback edition of 2002. We only need to add here
that the announcement of the epochal results from the SNO experiment
(VI. 3) on June 18, 2001, immediately led to a torrent of papers that
used the SNO results, together with those of the Super-Kamiokande
collaboration (VI. 2) and the previously announced results from the
chlorine, Kamiokande, SAGE, GALLEX, and GNO experiments, to elucidate
the importance of the experimental results for physics and astronomy.
We list directly below the three reprinted articles. Following the
list of reprinted papers, we cite (in chronological order of
appearance) a few of the articles that appeared in the two months
following the SNO announcement in order to give the interested reader
a feeling for the jubilation and the enthusiasm of the immediate
response to the new results.
