Weird quantum effects travel over hundreds of miles

I shared this yesterday; however, another article with another spin (no pun intended)

Working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Fermilab physics laboratory in Illinois, a team of physicists studied the states of neutrinos, among the smallest components of an atom.

Neutrinos are pretty inert, passing straight through matter and rarely interacting with it and require extremely sensitive equipment to be picked up.

But in addition to this, they have another strange property: they exist in a number of states, called flavours.
