Abstract

The detection of neutrinos from supernova SN 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud by the Kamiokande II (KII) and Irvine-Michigan-Brookhaven (1MB) detectors was a landmark event in astrophysics [1–4]. Although only about two dozen of the ~ 1028 neutrinos which passed through the Earth were detected, they provide us with the first glimpse of the collapse of a dying star, and hence deserve careful scrutiny.
