Dear Russell,

I hope you meant to write that photons are bosons with spin1. Otherwise we would have a hard time explaining Maxwell's Field equations. ;-) About the differences between neutrinos and photons, we could also point out that photons have a null extension in the time direction and neutrinos, having a small but non-zero mass have an extension in the time direction - I am thinking here in terms of how we would embed our particles in a Minkowski or equivalent space-time diagrams.


Kindest regards,

Stephen

Neutrinos are fermions with spin 1/2. Photons are bosons with spin
0. This is about as chalk and cheese as you can get. The difference is
not energy.
