Geoneutrinos confirm that we rest on a mantle filled with uranium and thorium

For the first time the signal of neutrinos produced by the radioactive decay processes of uranium and thorium distributed in the Earth's mantle has been observed, allowing to exclude the absence of radioactivity in the depths of the Earth. The measurement was made possible with the Borexino experiment in the Gran Sasso National Laboratories.
