What is a neutrino? Is it possible For a neutrino to be the smallest particle in the universe?
There is no "smallest particle in the universe". All objects must contain inner-architecture (smaller particles) ad-infinitum. The idea of a perfectly solid elementary particle does not make any sense. What would be inside of this alleged 'elementary particle'. This is idealism at it's worst.
So, to answer your question. There is no smallest particle. Matter is infinite in both the microscopic and macroscopic directions.

In all the reading that I've done about neutrinos I have never come across any HINT that the neutrino is made up of smaller particles. Neutrinos have an extremely small mass (even the existence of this mass is disputed, for a long time they were thought to have no mass), a half integer spin, they have chirality (google this is you want, in fact look at the Wikipedia article on the neutrino, it is a bit technical but you can get an idea about neutrinos from that). Your previous answer is probably based on a theory about particles that can be neither proved nor disproved.

on the religion forum I was describing what I thought was quantum physics...that the universe is accelerating and expanding in a spiral. Is that quantum or something else or combination of things...?

Last night we had a news segment announcing that scientist may have found what is dubbed as the God Particle. That which gives us mass as I understand their technical terms. It is early days but they are confident this is the missing particle they spent 40 or so years looking for.So I googled and...

Isn't it interesting that we don't know all the species on the earth that become extinct certainly by man's encroaching upon their environment but according to some so-called experts they know every single thing that took place during the so-called Big Bang. In the void between planets, star...

When the mainstream media labeled or nicknamed the Higgs boson, "God particle" scientists where aghast. Peter Higgs himself (one of the 6 physicists who in 1964 proposed the mechanism that suggested the existence of such a particle) said that labeling the Higgs boson the "God...
