  • We show that if our galactic halo were to consist of scalar or Dirac neutrinos with mass greater than approx.12 GeV, capture by the Earth and subsequent annihilation would yield a large flux of neutrinos at the surface which could be seen in proton-decay detectors. The luminosity of Uranus provides comparable constraints. Capture in the Sun can yield supplementary information, with detectable signals possible for masses as low as 6 GeV for both Dirac and Majorana neutrinos, scalar neutrinos… CONTINUE READING
