Mr. Neutrino

I was born in an exploding star.  A few seconds after the Big Bang I took off. Me and my buddies, trillions of us are on the journey of a lifetime.

You won’t believe what I’ve seen. I’ve zipped through stony meteorites and the icy tails of comets. I oohed and aahed with the others as we shot through planetary rings and thick, hot magma.

Planet Earth was a blip on our epic trip. As I moved through your planet it was nice to see all the fleshy things crawling about playing with their toys.

But that was long ago. We are at the beginning the most mind-blowing trip ever. Unfortunately the edge of the universe has a head start on us and unless something changes we will never catch up. We will never get to see what is beyond the edge.

Whatever is there I bet it is even more fantastic.  Who knows there might be a wild new universe on the other side? Maybe our universe is just rolling out the carpet for the entrance of an even cooler one.

I just had a thought. What if beyond the edge  of our universe there are other universes that are expanding towards us? What if there are zillions of neutrinos from those other universes racing in our direction?

I’m going to get ready. I’m going to have to be super fast if I want to say hello to my neutrino buddies as they zoom by on their way to who knows where.
