In terms of determining if the Sun has gone out or not, my understanding is that there is a fair amount of disagreement regarding the number of neutrinos we really expect to see coming from the Sun. Some scientists believe the predictions of solar models, whereas others consider that these models are in no way good enough to make predictions accurate enough to say that the number seen really is too small.

Another possible cause for the discrepency is that neutrinos may have a small amount of mass (recent results indicte they do), which means that one type of neutrino (there are three types all together) can change into another type, thereby ensuring they do not interact with the scientist's detector...very sneaky!
