Neutrino bursts from collapsing stars-results from the Homestake burst search
The 300 ton water Cerenkov detector located at a depth of 4.2 km water equivalent in the Homestake gold mine has been searching for bursts of neutrinos since late 1978. The detector has sensitivity sufficiently high to observe 10 MeV neutrinos and antineutrinos from collapsing stars releasing 1053 erg of neutrino energy at a distance of 10 kpc. No neutrino bursts have been seen over a running time of 384 days.
