A lot of effort for a tiny reward (Neutrino News)

How does one detect a neutrino? This (New Scientist) looks like one of those hippie physicists visions.
We need, like, a biiig bucket, man. And it's gotta be in ice. So, we, like, dig a huge hole, maybe 1km wide by 2.5km deep, in, like, the south pole. Yeah! Then we put some really sensitive sensors in there, and wait for... uhm, I dunno, like, maybe a decade or two?

Dude, I hope it works, otherwise that's an awfully big and cold money pit...
