Implications of the SN 1987A Neutrinos for Supernova Theory and the Mass of Ve
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.
