Well, Michael, I hate to break the news to you (actually I don't but it makes a good lead in. 8) ) but you're wrong on this one. The solar neutrino "problem" was resolved in 2002 by an experiment at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory. To summarize, the "problem" came about since the solar fusion process produces electron neutrinos. Initial observations on earth found only about 1/3 the expected number. However, these experiments were only sensitive to e-neutrinos and there are two other neutrino flavors: muon and tau neutrinos. Some theories gave a possible solution to the problem by having the neutrino change flavor, or oscillate. The SNO experiment confirmed this by directly observing mu and tau neutrinos from the sun in the proper proportion. As the link I gave here says
